As is common with the collection of astronomical data, signals are frequently dominated by noise. However, when performing FTs of light curves, re-binning data can improve the signalto-noise ratio (SNR) at lower frequencies. Using data collected from the Kepler space telescope, we sequentially re-binned data three times to investigate the SNR improvement of lower frequency (< 17 μHz) variability in white dwarf KIC 8626021. We found that the SNR at approximately 5.8 μHz greatly improved through…

Seven-Period Asteroseismic Fit of KIC 8626021

We present a new, better-constrained asteroseismic analysis of the helium-atmosphere (DB) white dwarf discovered in the field of view of the original Kepler mission. Observations obtained over the

In the course of their evolution, white-dwarf stars go through at least one phase of variability in which the global pulsations they undergo allow astronomers to peer into their interiors, making it

AT LAST—A V777 HER PULSATOR IN THE KEPLER FIELD

We present the discovery of the first—and so far the only—pulsating white dwarf star located in the field of view of the Kepler spacecraft. During our ongoing effort to search for compact pulsator

Pulsating White Dwarf Stars and Precision Asteroseismology

Galactic history is written in the white dwarf stars. Their surface properties hint at interiors composed of matter under extreme conditions. In the forty years since their discovery, pulsating white

Kepler Mission Design, Realized Photometric Performance, and Early Science

The Kepler Mission, launched on 2009 March 6, was designed with the explicit capability to detect Earth-size planets in the habitable zone of solar-like stars using the transit photometry method.

PHOTOMETRIC VARIABILITY IN KEPLER TARGET STARS: THE SUN AMONG STARS—A FIRST LOOK

The Kepler mission provides an exciting opportunity to study the light curves of stars with unprecedented precision and continuity of coverage. This is the first look at a large sample of stars with

Starspot signature on the light curve: Learning about the latitudinal distribution of spots

Quasi-periodic modulations of the stellar light curve may result from dark spots crossing the visible stellar disc. Due to differential rotation, spots at different latitudes generally have different
