TTVs are derived from Q0-Q17 Kepler data.  x-axes: “Observed Tc” (Mid-Transit Time): EXOFAST’s best-fits from Normalized PDCSAP_FLUX Kepler light flux vs. time (BJD_tdb - 2454900) data.  y-axes: “(O-C)”: difference between Observed Tc and the Calculated Tc from the graphically obtained linear ephemeris.

Kepler KOI-1271.01 (KIC-8631160) 2-(or more?)-Planet System

TTV Evidence:
The presence of both a credible (i.e.: False Alarm Probability (FAP) < 0.1) periodicity in the Lomb-Scargle Periodogram (LSP) of [(O-C) vs. Time] ("TTVxy") data points, along with a sinusoidal distribution of the same points displaying a corresponding periodicity ("P_ttv") (see Figure(s) below), is strongly suggestive of the presence of an unseen (non-transiting), gravitationally perturbing planetary object(s) in this system.
