Using our K2 Campaign 5 fully automated planet detection data set (43 planets), which has corresponding measures of completeness and reliability, we infer an underlying planet population model for the FGK dwarfs sample (9,257 stars). Implementing a broken power-law for both the period and radius distribution, we find an overall planet occurrence of 1.00 −0.51 planets per star within a period range of 0.5–38 days. Making similar cuts and running a comparable analysis on the Kepler sample (2,318… CONTINUE READING
