We measure the mass of a modestly irradiated giant planet, KOI-94d. We wish to determine whether this planet, which is in a 22 day orbit and receives 2700 times as much incident flux as Jupiter, is as dense as Jupiter or rarefied like inflated hot Jupiters. KOI-94 also hosts at least three smaller transiting planets, all of which were detected by the Kepler mission. With 26 radial velocities of KOI-94 from the W. M. Keck Observatory and a simultaneous fit to the Kepler light curve, we measure… 

The mass of the Mars-sized exoplanet Kepler-138 b from transit timing

TLDR
The sizes and masses of three planets orbiting Kepler-138, a star much fainter and cooler than the Sun, are reported, determining that the mass of the Mars-sized inner planet, Kepler- 138 b, is Earth masses and its density is grams per cubic centimetre.

MASSES, RADII, AND ORBITS OF SMALL KEPLER PLANETS: THE TRANSITION FROM GASEOUS TO ROCKY PLANETS

We report on the masses, sizes, and orbits of the planets orbiting 22 Kepler stars. There are 49 planet candidates around these stars, including 42 detected through transits and 7 revealed by precise

DENSITY AND ECCENTRICITY OF KEPLER PLANETS

We analyze the transit timing variations (TTV) obtained by the Kepler mission for 22 sub-Jovian planet pairs (19 published, 3 new) that lie close to mean motion resonances. We find that the TTV

A 2 R⊕ Planet Orbiting the Bright Nearby K Dwarf Wolf 503

Since its launch in 2009, the Kepler telescope has found thousands of planets with radii between that of Earth and Neptune. Recent studies of the distribution of these planets have revealed a gap in

A POTENTIAL SUPER-VENUS IN THE KEPLER-69 SYSTEM

Transiting planets have greatly expanded and diversified the exoplanet field. These planets provide greater access to characterization of exoplanet atmospheres and structure. The Kepler mission has

KEPLER-79'S LOW DENSITY PLANETS

Kepler-79 (KOI-152) has four planetary candidates ranging in size from 3.5 to 7 times the size of the Earth, in a compact configuration with orbital periods near a 1:2:4:6 chain of commensurability,

KEPLER PLANETS: A TALE OF EVAPORATION

Inspired by the Kepler mission's planet discoveries, we consider the thermal contraction of planets close to their parent star, under the influence of evaporation. The mass-loss rates are based on

Two empirical regimes of the planetary mass-radius relation

Today, with the large number of detected exoplanets and improved measurements, we can reach the next step of planetary characterization. Classifying different populations of planets is not only

THE MASS–METALLICITY RELATION FOR GIANT PLANETS

Exoplanet discoveries of recent years have provided a great deal of new data for studying the bulk compositions of giant planets. Here we identify 47 transiting giant planets (20 M⊕ < M < 20 MJ)

PROBABILISTIC MASS–RADIUS RELATIONSHIP FOR SUB-NEPTUNE-SIZED PLANETS

The Kepler Mission has discovered thousands of planets with radii <4 , paving the way for the first statistical studies of the dynamics, formation, and evolution of these sub-Neptunes and

An orbital period of 0.94 days for the hot-Jupiter planet WASP-18b

TLDR
Either WASP-18 is in a rare, exceptionally short-lived state, or the tidal dissipation in this system (and possibly other hot-Jupiter systems) must be much weaker than in the Solar System.
