The paper has been updated:

Planetary Construction Zones in Occultation: Discovery of an Extrasolar Ring System Transiting a Young Sun-like Star and Future Prospects for Detecting Eclipses by Circumsecondary and Circumplanetary Disks

Notably the diagram for the proposed structure of the ring system has been altered from the first version of the paper.
