Probing a $r^{-n}$ modification of the Newtonian potential with Exoplanets

26 May 2020 Ruggiero Matteo Luca Iorio Lorenzo

The growing availability of increasingly accurate data on transiting exoplanets suggests the possibility of using these systems as possible testbeds for modified models of gravity. In particular, we suggest that the post-Keplerian (pK) dynamical effects from the perturbations of the Newtonian potential falling off as the square or the cube of the distance from the mass of the host star break the degeneracy of the anomalistic, draconitic and sidereal periods...
