The continuous photometric observations collected by the Kepler satellite over 4 yr provide a wealth of data with an unequalled quantity and quality for the study of stellar evolution of more than 200 000 stars. Moreover, the length of the dataset provides a unique source of information for detecting magnetic activity and associated temporal variability in the acoustic oscillations. In this regards, the Kepler mission was awaited with great expectations. The search for the signature of magnetic…

Signatures of Magnetic Activity in the Seismic Data of Solar-type Stars Observed by Kepler

In the Sun, the frequencies of the acoustic modes are observed to vary in phase with the magnetic activity level. These frequency variations are expected to be common in solar-type stars and contain

Photospheric and chromospheric magnetic activity of seismic solar analogs

We identify a set of 18 solar analogs among the seismic sample of solar-like stars observed by the Kepler satellite rotating between 10 and 40 days. This set is constructed using the asteroseismic

Long-term Photometric Variability in Kepler Full-frame Images: Magnetic Cycles of Sun–like Stars

Photometry from the Kepler mission is optimized to detect small, short-duration signals like planet transits at the expense of long-term trends. This long-term variability can be recovered in

The Impact of Gaia DR1 on Asteroseismic Inferences from Kepler

The Kepler mission has been fantastic for asteroseismology of solar-type stars, but the targets are typically quite distant. As a consequence, the reliability of asteroseismic modeling has been


The stellar magnetic field plays a crucial role in the star internal mechanisms, as in the interactions with its environment. The study of starspots provides information about the stellar magnetic

Signatures of Magnetic Activity: On the Relation between Stellar Properties and p-mode Frequency Variations

In the Sun, the properties of acoustic modes are sensitive to changes in the magnetic activity. In particular, mode frequencies are observed to increase with increasing activity level. Thanks to

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

Lithium abundance and rotation of seismic solar analogues - Solar and stellar connection from Kepler and Hermes observations

Lithium abundance A(Li) and surface rotation are good diagnostic tools to probe the internal mixing and angular momentum transfer in stars. We explore the relation between surface rotation, A(Li) and

Influence of Magnetic Activity on the Determination of Stellar Parameters Through Asteroseismology

Magnetic activity changes the gravito-acoustic modes of solar-like stars and in particular their frequencies. There is an angular-degree dependence that is believed to be caused by the non-spherical

Seismological insights into solar and stellar magnetic activity cycles

The Sun’s magnetic activity cycle varies primarily on a time scale of approximately 11yrs from minimum to maximum and back again. It is well-known that the properties of the Sun’s acoustic



The HERMES solar atlas and the spectroscopic analysis of the seismic solar analogue KIC 3241581

Context. Solar-analogue stars provide an excellent resource to study the Sun’s evolution, i.e. the changes with time in stellar structure, activity, or rotation for solar-like stars. The unparalleled

The Activity and Variability of the Sun and Sun-like Stars. I. Synoptic Ca II H and K Observations

Synoptic measurements of activity in Sun-like stars have been performed continuously since 1966, and the largest set comes from the Mount Wilson HK project, in the form of the well-known S index. We

Rotation and magnetism of Kepler pulsating solar-like stars : Towards asteroseismically calibrated age-rotation relations

Kepler ultra-high precision photometry of long and continuous observations provides a unique dataset in which surface rotation and variability can be studied for thousands of stars. Because many of

Impact on asteroseismic analyses of regular gaps in Kepler data

The NASA Kepler mission has observed more than 190,000 stars in the constellations of Cygnus and Lyra. Around 4 years of almost continuous ultra high-precision photometry have been obtained reaching

Spectral analysis of Kepler SPB and β Cephei candidate stars

Context. For asteroseismic modelling, analysis of the high-accuracy light curves delivered by the Kepler satellite mission needs support by ground-based, multi-colour and spectroscopic observations.


Recently the number of main-sequence and subgiant stars exhibiting solar-like oscillations that are resolved into individual mode frequencies has increased dramatically. While only a few such data

Asteroseismic stellar activity relations

In asteroseismology an important diagnostic of the evolutionary status of a star is the small frequency separation which is sensitive to the gradient of the mean molecular weight in the stellar

Spectrum analysis of bright Kepler γ Doradus candidate stars

Ground-based spectroscopic follow-up observations of the pulsating stars observed by the Kepler satellite mission are needed for their asteroseismic modelling. We aim to derive the fundamental
