Abstract

We measure planet occurrence rates using the planet candidates discovered by the Q1-Q16 Kepler pipeline search. This study examines planet occurrence rates for the Kepler GK dwarf target sample for planet radii, $0.75\;\ leqslant\; $ $R _ \ rm p $ $\;\ leqslant $2.5$R _ \ oplus $, and orbital periods, $50\;\ leqslant $ $P _ \ mathrm orb $ $\ leqslant $300 days, with an emphasis on a thorough exploration and identification of the most important sources of systematic uncertainties. Integrating over this parameter space, ...
