Frequency of short period planets

Post by Lazarus on 23rd March 2011, 6:29 pm

Another study of the frequency of low-mass planets...

The Frequency of Low-Mass Exoplanets. III. Toward η at Short Periods

Our results are consistent with those of the NASA-UC Eta-Earth survey: we find that 18.5+12.9−18.5% of stars host terrestrial-mass planets (Mp < 10 M) at periods of less than 50 days.
