Abstract Title

Searching For Titius-Bode Predicted Exoplanets

Disciplines

Other Astrophysics and Astronomy

Abstract

With the recent surge in exoplanet discoveries in recent years, some new and unproven techniques have appeared. One such technique is fitting a model to a system with 3 or more known planets to predict new planets within the system. A 2015 paper by Bovaird, et al. predicted 228 planets in 151 Kepler systems. These predictions were made by using a generalized Titius-Bode relation and have an expected 15% detection rate among candidates with a > .55 probability of transiting their host star. The purpose of this project will be to test the validity and predicting power of this technique.
