They are small worlds after all: revised properties of Kepler M dwarf stars and their planets

Gaidos, E.; Mann, A. W.; Kraus, A. L.; Ireland, Michael


We classified the reddest (r-J > 2.2) stars observed by the NASA Kepler mission into main sequence dwarf or evolved giant stars and determined the properties of 4216 M dwarfs based on a comparison of available photometry with that of nearby calibrator stars, as well as available proper motions and spectra. We revised the properties of candidate transiting planets using the stellar parameters, high-resolution imaging to identify companion stars, and, in the case of binaries, fitting light...[Show more]
