Determining the architecture of multi-planetary systems is one of the cornerstones of understanding planet formation and evolution. Resonant systems are especially important as the fragility of their orbital configuration ensures that no significant scattering or collisional event has taken place since the earliest formation phase when the parent protoplanetary disc was still present. In this context, TOI-178 has been the subject of particular attention since the first TESS observations hinted… 

A Tidal Origin for a Three-body Resonance in Kepler-221

Over the course of the last two decades, traditional models of planet formation have been repeatedly challenged by the emerging census of extrasolar planets. Key among them is the orbital

TOI-1749: an M dwarf with a Trio of Planets including a Near-resonant Pair

We report the discovery of one super-Earth- (TOI-1749b) and two sub-Neptune-sized planets (TOI-1749c and TOI-1749d) transiting an early M dwarf at a distance of 100 pc, which were first identified as

TOI-216: Resonant Constraints on Planet Migration

TOI-216 is a pair of close-in planets with orbits deep in the 2:1 mean motion resonance. The inner Neptune-class planet (TOI-216b) is near 0.12 au (orbital period P b ≃ 17 days) and has a substantial

Architectures of Compact Super-Earth Systems Shaped by Instabilities

Compact nonresonant systems of sub-Jovian planets are the most common outcome of the planet formation process. Despite exhibiting broad overall diversity, these planets also display dramatic

Edge-of-the-Multis: Evidence for a Transition in the Outer Architectures of Compact Multiplanet Systems

Although the architectures of compact multiple-planet systems are well characterized, there has been little examination of their “outer edges,” or the locations of their outermost planets. Here we

A Transiting, Temperate Mini-Neptune Orbiting the M Dwarf TOI-1759 Unveiled by TESS

We report the discovery and characterization of TOI-1759 b, a temperate (400 K) sub-Neptune-sized exoplanet orbiting the M dwarf TOI-1759 (TIC 408636441). TOI-1759 b was observed by TESS to transit

TESS-Keck Survey. IX. Masses of Three Sub-Neptunes Orbiting HD 191939 and the Discovery of a Warm Jovian plus a Distant Substellar Companion

Exoplanet systems with multiple transiting planets are natural laboratories for testing planetary astrophysics. One such system is HD 191939 (TOI 1339), a bright (V = 9) and Sun-like (G9V) star,

An upper limit on late accretion and water delivery in the TRAPPIST-1 exoplanet system

The TRAPPIST-1 system contains seven roughly Earth-sized planets locked in a multiresonant orbital configuration 1 , 2 , which has enabled precise measurements of the planets’ masses and constrained

HD 83443c: A Highly Eccentric Giant Planet on a 22 yr Orbit

We report the discovery of a highly eccentric long-period Jovian planet orbiting the hot-Jupiter host HD 83443. By combining radial velocity data from four instruments (AAT/UCLES, Keck/HIRES, HARPS,

The TESS-Keck Survey. XI. Mass Measurements for Four Transiting Sub-Neptunes Orbiting K Dwarf TOI–1246

Multiplanet systems are valuable arenas for investigating exoplanet architectures and comparing planetary siblings. TOI-1246 is one such system, with a moderately bright K dwarf (V = 11.6, K = 9.9)



A resonant chain of four transiting, sub-Neptune planets

The architecture of Kepler-223 is too finely tuned to have been formed by scattering, and numerical simulations demonstrate that its properties are natural outcomes of the migration hypothesis.

Dynamics and Origin of the 2:1 Orbital Resonances of the GJ 876 Planets

The discovery by Marcy and coworkers of two planets in 2 : 1 orbital resonance about the star GJ 876 has been supplemented by a dynamical fit to the data by Laughlin & Chambers, which places the

A seven-planet resonant chain in TRAPPIST-1

The TRAPPIST-1 system is the first transiting planet system found orbiting an ultra-cool dwarf star. At least seven planets similar to Earth in radius and in mass were previously found to transit


We report on the orbital architectures of Kepler systems having multiple-planet candidates identified in the analysis of data from the first six quarters of Kepler data and reported by Batalha et al.

Abstract We study the orbital evolution of a three-planet system with masses in the super-Earth regime resulting from the action of tides on the planets induced by the central star which cause

The Laplace resonance in the Kepler-60 planetary system

We investigate the dynamical stability of the Kepler-60 planetary system with three super-Earths. We first determine their orbital elements and masses by Transit Timing Variation (TTV) data spanning


Kepler has discovered hundreds of systems with multiple transiting exoplanets which hold tremendous potential both individually and collectively for understanding the formation and evolution of

Migration and the Formation of Systems of Hot Super-Earths and Neptunes

The existence of extrasolar planets with short orbital periods suggests that planetary migration induced by tidal interaction with the protoplanetary disk is important. Cores and terrestrial planets

Seven temperate terrestrial planets around the nearby ultracool dwarf star TRAPPIST-1

The observations reveal that at least seven planets with sizes and masses similar to those of Earth revolve around TRAPPIST-1, and the six inner planets form a near-resonant chain, such that their orbital periods are near-ratios of small integers.

The K2-138 System: A Near-resonant Chain of Five Sub-Neptune Planets Discovered by Citizen Scientists

K2-138 is a moderately bright (V = 12.2, K = 10.3) main-sequence K star observed in Campaign 12 of the NASA K2 mission. It hosts five small (1.6–3.3 ) transiting planets in a compact architecture.
