Abstract

We present an analysis of the Kepler Object of Interest Catalogue based on complete MCMC modeling to provide posterior distributions. We show how planet- candidates, eclipsing binaries, background blends and false-alarms assemble into populations based on fundamental transit parameters such as transit duration and depth. Our work identifies regions of parameter space that allow one to identify planets with low false-positive contamination. We also present a HR-diagram based on exoplanetary ...
