Number of target stars: 156,453 (58,041) Number of candidates: 1,235 (438) ◦ Orbiting 997 (375) stars Solar Subset: T eff = 4100-6100 K log g = 4.0-4.9 Kepmag < 15 Bright Dwarf Sample: T eff = 3600-7100 K

4
Within each grid cell, calculate: ◦ Number of candidates ◦ “Augmented” number of candidates ◦ Number of stars searched ◦ Planet occurrence rate

5
Number of non-transiting planets with same radius and period as transiting candidates =probability of transit where

6
Number of stars for which each transiting planet has SNR > 10

7
# of Stars Searched Augmented # of Planets Planet Occurrence Rate =

8
Periods <50 days Radii: 2-32 R Earth

9
Planet Radius 10 Days17 Days 2 R Earth 2.8 R Earth Period

10
k R = 2.9 +0.5/-0.4 α = -1.92 ± 0.11

12
Larger planets have shorter cutoff periods and sharper transitions.

14
f 0 = 0.165±0.011 k T =-0.081±0.011

15
Random errors? ◦ Trend preserved for T eff = 4100-6100 K ◦ Trend preserved after Monte Carlo applying gaussian random deviates to T eff and log g Systematic stellar radius bias? ◦ Would require log g error of 1.6 dex ◦ Errors in KIC are ~0.25 dex Systematic metallicity bias? ◦ Errors on [Fe/H] in KIC are ≳0.2 dex (rms) ◦ Cannot be ruled out

16
More massive planets have more H/He gas Change at 4.5 M E ? Models from Fortney et al. 2007 Solar system Kepler Other surveys

17
Assume planets with densities above 4 g/cm 3 are primarily composed of refractory elements

18
Toy density models ◦ Constant density ◦ Piece-wise constant density Compared to Eta-Earth Survey ◦ Volume-limited survey of 166 GK dwarfs ◦ 35 planets detected around 24 stars ◦ Keck-HIRES ◦ See Howard et al. 2010

19
Black: Kepler prediction Red: Eta-Earth measurement Decreasing density

20
Best models have ρ≳4g/cm 3 for Rp≲3R E

21
Planet occurrence increases with decreasing radius and increasing orbital period Smaller planets (2-4 R E ) are more common around cooler stars (metallicity effect?) Larger planets have steeper cutoffs at shorter periods than smaller planets There is a ridge of high planet occurrence from 3 days and 2 R E to 50 days and 4 R E.
