  • We present an analysis of the transit timing variations (TTVs) in the multi-transiting planetary system around Kepler-51 (KOI-620). This system consists of two confirmed transiting planets, Kepler-51b (P b = 45.2 days) and Kepler-51c (P c = 85.3 days), and one transiting planet candidate KOI-620.02 (P 02 = 130.2 days), which lie close to a 1: 2: 3 resonance chain. Our analysis shows that their TTVs are consistently explained by the three-planet model, and constrains their masses as (Kepler-51b… CONTINUE READING
