The NASA Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is about to provide full-frame images of almost the entire sky. The amount of stellar data to be analysed represents hundreds of millions stars, which is several orders of magnitude more than the number of stars observed by the Convection, Rotation and planetary Transits satellite (CoRoT), and NASA Kepler and K2 missions. We aim at automatically classifying the newly observed stars with near real-time algorithms to better guide the…

Revisiting the Impact of Stellar Magnetic Activity on the Detectability of Solar-Like Oscillations by Kepler
Over 2,000 stars were observed for one month with a high enough cadence in order to look for acoustic modes during the survey phase of the Kepler mission. Solar-like oscillations have been detected
A “Quick Look” at All-sky Galactic Archeology with TESS: 158,000 Oscillating Red Giants from the MIT Quick-look Pipeline
We present the first near all-sky yield of oscillating red giants from the prime mission data of NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). We apply machine learning toward long-cadence
Surface Rotation and Photometric Activity for Kepler Targets. I. M and K Main-sequence Stars
Brightness variations due to dark spots on the stellar surface encode information about stellar surface rotation and magnetic this http URL this work, we analyze the Kepler long-cadence data of
ROOSTER: a machine-learning analysis tool for Kepler stellar rotation periods
In order to understand stellar evolution, it is crucial to efficiently determine stellar surface rotation periods. Indeed, while they are of great importance in stellar models, angular momentum
Weighing stars from birth to death: mass determination methods across the HRD
The mass of a star is the most fundamental parameter for its structure, evolution, and final fate. It is particularly important for any kind of stellar archaeology and characterization of exoplanets.
Searching for solar-like oscillations in pre-main sequence stars using APOLLO
In recent years, our understanding of solar-like oscillations from main sequence to red giant stars has improved dramatically thanks to pristine data collected from space telescopes. One of the


New insights on stellar evolution and stellar interiors physics are being made possible by asteroseismology. Throughout the course of the Kepler mission, asteroseismology has also played an important
Initial Characteristics of Kepler Long Cadence Data for Detecting Transiting Planets
The Kepler Mission seeks to detect Earth-size planets transiting solar-like stars in its ~115?deg2 field of view over the course of its 3.5 year primary mission by monitoring the brightness of each
Determining global parameters of the oscillations of solar-like stars
Context. Helioseismology has enabled us to better understand the solar interior, while also allowing us to better constrain solar models. But now is a tremendous epoch for asteroseismology as space
The light curves of 252 B-star candidates in the Kepler database are analyzed in a similar fashion to that done by Balona et al. to further characterize B-star variability, increase the sample of
A search for red giant solar-like oscillations in all Kepler data
The recently published Kepler mission Data Release 25 (DR25) reported on ∼197 000 targets observed during the mission. Despite this, no wide search for red giants showing solar-like oscillations
Automated extraction of oscillation parameters for Kepler observations of solar-type stars
The recent launch of the Kepler space telescope brings the opportunity to study oscillations systematically in large numbers of solar-like stars. In the framework of the asteroFLAG project, we have
Gaia Data Release 2
Context. The second data release of the Gaia mission (DR2) includes an advance catalogue of variable stars. The classifications of these stars are based on sparse photometry from the first 22 months
The detection of a transiting planet around π Men (HD 39091), using data from the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), is reported, confirming the existence of the planet and leading to a mass determination of 4.82±0.85 M ⊕.
FliPer: A global measure of power density to estimate surface gravities of main-sequence solar-like stars and red giants
Asteroseismology provides global stellar parameters such as masses, radii, or surface gravities using mean global seismic parameters and effective temperature for thousands of low-mass stars (0.8 M⊙
Revised Stellar Properties of Kepler Targets for the Q1-17 (DR25) Transit Detection Run
The determination of exoplanet properties and occurrence rates using Kepler data critically depends on our knowledge of the fundamental properties (such as temperature, radius and mass) of the
