Peas in a Pod? Radius correlations in Kepler multi-planet systems

14 Aug 2020 Murchikova Lena Tremaine Scott

We address the claim of Weiss et al. (2018) that the radii of adjacent planets in Kepler multi-planet systems are correlated. We explore two simple toy models---in the first the radii of the planets are chosen at random from a single universal distribution, and in the second we postulate several types of system with distinct radius distributions...
