We characterize the occurrence rate of planets, ranging in size from 0.5-16 R$_\oplus$, orbiting FGK stars with orbital periods from 0.5-500 days. Our analysis is based on results from the "DR25" catalog of planet candidates produced by NASA's Kepler mission and stellar radii from Gaia "DR2". We incorporate additional Kepler data products to accurately characterize the efficiency of planets being recognized as a "threshold crossing events" (TCE) by Kepler's Transiting Planet Search pipeline and… Expand

Searching the Entirety of Kepler Data. II. Occurrence Rate Estimates for FGK Stars
We present exoplanet occurrence rates estimated with approximate Bayesian computation for planets with radii between 0.5 and 16 $R_{\bigoplus}$ and orbital periods between 0.78 and 400 days, orbitingExpand
Sensitivity Analyses of Exoplanet Occurrence Rates from Kepler and Gaia
We infer the number of planets-per-star as a function of orbital period and planet size using $Kepler$ archival data products with updated stellar properties from the $Gaia$ Data Release 2. UsingExpand
Occurrence and Architecture of Kepler Planetary Systems as Functions of Stellar Mass and Effective Temperature
The Kepler mission has discovered thousands of exoplanets around various stars with different spectral types (M, K, G, and F) and thus different masses and effective temperatures. Previous studiesExpand
Constraining the entropy of formation from young transiting planet
Recently K2 and TESS have discovered transiting planets with radii between $\sim$ 5-10 R$_\oplus$ around stars with ages $<100$ Myr. These young planets are likely to be the progenitors of theExpand
A Closer Look at Exoplanet Occurrence Rates: Considering the Multiplicity of Stars without Detected Planets
One core goal of the Kepler mission was to determine the frequency of Earth-like planets that orbit Sun-like stars. Accurately estimating this planet occurrence rate requires both a well-vetted listExpand
The Impact of Stripped Cores on the Frequency of Earth-size Planets in the Habitable Zone
The frequency of Earth-size planets in the habitable zone of Sun-like stars, hereafter $\eta_\oplus$, is a key parameter to evaluate the yield of nearby Earth analogues that can be detected andExpand
Accounting for multiplicity in calculating eta Earth
