Exoplanet Predictions Based on the Generalised Titius-Bode Relation

We evaluate the extent to which newly detected exoplanetary systems containing at least four planets adhere to a generalized Titius-Bode (TB) relation. We find that the majority of exoplanet systems in our sample adhere to the TB relation to a greater extent than the Solar System does, particularly those detected by the Kepler mission. We use a generalized TB relation to make a list of predictions for the existence of 126 additional exoplanets in 64 multiple-exoplanet systems: 62 candidates from interpolation, 64 candidates from extrapolation. We predict the existence of 2 low-radius (R < 2.3 Earth Radii) exoplanets in the habitable zone of KOI-490 and that the average number of planets in the habitable zone of a star is 1-2. The usefulness of the TB relation and its validation as a tool for predicting planets will be partially tested by upcoming Kepler data releases.
