The Exoplanet's Stars

We are developing a code to automatically generate updated diagrams and visualizations from various exoplanets catalogs for the Habitable Exoplanet Catalog. Here is a test showing the mass, temperature, and luminosity relationships of the 562 parent stars of the latest 684 exoplanets from the Extrasolar Planets Encyclopedia. All plots show the number of each spectral type in parenthesis. The sampled population is biased toward Sun like G stars although about 72% of stars are M stars (red dwarfs). High resolution versions of these plots are available on request for posters or presentations.
