Abstract

The Kepler mission discovered 2842 exoplanet candidates with 2 yr of data. We provide updates to the Kepler planet candidate sample based upon 3 yr (Q1? Q12) of data. Through a series of tests to exclude false-positives, primarily caused by eclipsing binary stars and instrumental systematics, 855 additional planetary candidates have been discovered, bringing the total number known to 3697. We provide revised transit parameters and accompanying posterior distributions based on a Markov Chain Monte Carlo ...
