The cumulative KOI table compiles historical information from the individual KOI tables to provide the most accurate dispositions and stellar and planetary information in one place. All the information in this table has provenance in closed or open KOI tables. The data associated with individual KOIs may have provenance in more than one KOI table. The cumulative table will always be in flux and will never be closed.
The Q1-Q12 Kepler Objects-of-Interest (KOI) activity table reports the results of the Q1-Q12 transit search based on our in-depth analysis of the Q1-Q12 Threshold Crossing Events (TCEs). The steps in this analysis are: (1) triage (i.e., take a quick look at) all the TCEs to identify those that most resemble transiting planets (i.e., rule out the obvious false alarms), (2) fit models to this subset of TCEs and promote the most promising ones to KOI status, (3) examine the flux curves and centroid offsets for these KOIs to determine whether they are planetary candidates or false positives (i.e., disposition them), (4) characterize their host stars, and (5) use a physical transit model to update their ephemerides, determine best-fit parameters, and estimate errors.
WARNING: The Q1-Q12 transit search excluded 2123 eclipsing binaries from consideration (see Q1-Q12 TCE Release Notes), but all remaining eclipsing binaries found in this pipeline run have been retained, given KOI numbers, and included in this Q1-Q12 activity table. In addition, there are most likely some residual image artifacts and other false alarms (non-astrophysical signatures) which inadvertently made it through Steps 1 and 2 above. In other words, this KOI activity table is known to contain many objects that will ultimately become false positives. See the Q1-Q12 delivery history for the status of Steps 3 through 5 above, which will identify and characterize the planetary candidates within the Q1-Q12 KOIs during the coming months.
The Q1-Q8 KOI table describes the results of triaging the Q1-Q8 Threshold Crossing Events (TCEs) into new Kepler Objects of Interest (KOIs), dispositioning new KOIs into planet candidates and false positive events, characterizing host stars and fitting physical transit models using the Q1-Q10 data. The work was organized as follows:
