An assessment of potential Plato Observing strategies to maximize science return from the Kepler Field.

Rowe, J.F.; Jontof-Hutter, D.; Lissauer, J.

The Plato Mission has the unique capacity to provide long-base observations of thousands of stars and their transiting planets. The current mission plan includes a 2-year stare than includes the Kepler Field.  Plato observations have the potential to improve science return from the Kepler field. Including, the reliability of Kepler planet candidates in the low S/N regime, detection of long-period planets and an overall improvement of exoplanet occurrence rates and transit timing variations and long-term stellar variability and stellar cycles.  The low S/N transit regime includes
potential Earth-sized habitable zone planets around Sun-like stars, which is of high intellectual interest.
