These figures and videos show the habitable zones around the circumbinary planet-hosting systems of
Kepler 16, Kepler 34, Kepler 35, Kepler 38, Kepler 47, Kepler 64, and Kepler 453. The related calculations of the boundaries of the habitable zone can be found in
Haghighipour & Kaltenegger (2013)
Kaltenegger & Haghighipour (2013).
Each system is displayed for different constellations of the binary system.
The video shows the habitable zone for one orbit of the binary.
The dashed line corresponds to the inner boundary of stable planetary orbits and has been calculated using the stability criterion given by
Holman & Wiegert (1999).
The Kepler 453 system is described in Welsh et. al (2015). The orbits of stars and planets in those figures are N-body integrations of the observed data.
