We report the distribution of planets as a function of planet radius, orbital period, and stellar effective temperature for orbital periods less than 50 days around solar-type (GK) stars. These results are based on the 1235 planets (formally “planet candidates”) from the Kepler mission that include a nearly complete set of detected planets as small as 2 R⊕. For each of the 156,000 target stars, we assess the detectability of planets as a function of planet radius, Rp, and orbital period, P… 

A STATISTICAL RECONSTRUCTION OF THE PLANET POPULATION AROUND KEPLER SOLAR-TYPE STARS

Using the cumulative catalog of planets detected by the NASA Kepler mission, we reconstruct the intrinsic occurrence of Earth- to Neptune-size (1–4 R⊕) planets and their distributions with radius and

A STELLAR-MASS-DEPENDENT DROP IN PLANET OCCURRENCE RATES

The Kepler spacecraft has discovered a large number of planets with up to one-year periods and down to terrestrial sizes. While the majority of the target stars are main-sequence dwarfs of spectral

A PLATEAU IN THE PLANET POPULATION BELOW TWICE THE SIZE OF EARTH

We carry out an independent search of Kepler photometry for small transiting planets with sizes 0.5–8.0 times that of Earth and orbital periods between 5 and 50 days, with the goal of measuring the

Giant Planet Occurrence within 0.2 au of Low-luminosity Red Giant Branch Stars with K2

Every Sun-like star will eventually evolve into a red giant, a transition which can profoundly affect the evolution of a surrounding planetary system. The timescale of dynamical planet evolution and

THE OCCURRENCE RATE OF SMALL PLANETS AROUND SMALL STARS

We use the optical and near-infrared photometry from the Kepler Input Catalog to provide improved estimates of the stellar characteristics of the smallest stars in the Kepler target list. We find

ON THE NATURE OF SMALL PLANETS AROUND THE COOLEST KEPLER STARS

We constrain the densities of Earth- to Neptune-size planets around very cool (Te = 3660–4660 K) Kepler stars by comparing 1202 Keck/HIRES radial velocity measurements of 150 nearby stars to a model

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 studies

Probing the connection between a star’s metallicity and the presence and properties of any associated planets offers an observational link between conditions during the epoch of planet formation and

(abridged) We have obtained precise radial velocities for a sample of 373 G and K type giants at Lick Observatory regularly over more than 12 years. Planets have been identified around 15 giant

THE OCCURRENCE RATE OF EARTH ANALOG PLANETS ORBITING SUN-LIKE STARS

Kepler is a space telescope that searches Sun-like stars for planets. Its major goal is to determine ηEarth, the fraction of Sun-like stars that have planets like Earth. When a planet “transits” or
