Using the inclinations of Kepler systems to prioritize new titius-bode-based exoplanet predictions

Bovaird, Timothy; Lineweaver, Charles; Jacobsen, S.K.

Description

We analyse a sample of multiple-exoplanet systems which contain at least three transiting planets detected by the Kepler mission ('Kepler multiples'). We use a generalized Titius- Bode relation to predict the periods of 228 additional planets in 151 of these Kepler multiples. These Titius-based predictions suggest that there are, on average, 2 ± 1 planets in the habitable zone of each star. We estimate the inclination of the invariable plane for each system and prioritize our planet predictions...[Show more]
