Context. High-precision, space-based photometric missions like CoRoT and Kepler have revealed new and surprising phenomena in classical variable stars. Such discoveries were the period doubling in RR Lyrae stars and the frequent occurrence of additional periodicities some of which can be explained by radial overtone modes, but others are discordant with the radial eigenfrequency spectrum. Aims. We search for signs of period doubling in CoRoT RR Lyrae stars. The occurrence of this dynamical… 
Finest light curve details, physical parameters, and period fluctuations of CoRoT RR Lyrae stars
The CoRoT satellite supplied the scientific community with a huge data base of variable stars. Among them the RR Lyrae stars have intensively been discussed in numerous papers in the last few years,
RR Lyrae stars: New discoveries in the OGLE data
Abstract We report our recent analyses of the RR Lyrae Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE) photometry, which resulted in several new discoveries and important results. We present the
Recent photometric space missions, such as CoRoT and Kepler, revealed that many RR Lyrae stars pulsate?beyond their main radial pulsation mode?in low-amplitude modes. Space data seem to indicate a
Kepler photometry of RRc stars: peculiar double-mode pulsations and period doubling
We present the analysis of four first overtone RR Lyrae stars observed with the Kepler space telescope, based on data obtained over nearly 2.5yr. All four stars are found to be multiperiodic. The
The space photometry revolution and our understanding of RR Lyrae stars
The study of RR Lyrae stars has recently been invigorated thanks to the long, uninterrupted, ultra-precise time series data provided by the Kepler and CoRoT space telescopes. We give a brief overview
Learned et al. proposed that a sufficiently advanced extra-terrestrial civilization may tickle Cepheid and RR Lyrae variable stars with a neutrino beam at the right time, thus causing them to trigger
Peculiar double-periodic pulsation in RR Lyrae stars of the OGLE collection – I. Long-period stars with dominant radial fundamental mode
We present the discovery of a new, peculiar form of double-periodic pulsation in RR Lyrae stars. In four, long-period ($P>0.6$ d) stars observed by the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment, and
Are all RR Lyrae stars modulated?
We analyzed 151 variables previously classified as fundamental mode RR Lyrae stars from Campaigns 01–04 of the Kepler two-wheel (K2) archive. By employing a method based on the application of
RR Lyrae Stars as Seen by the Kepler Space Telescope
The unprecedented photometric precision along with the quasi-continuous sampling provided by the Kepler space telescope revealed new and unpredicted phenomena that reformed and invigorated RR Lyrae
Revisiting the Kepler non-Blazhko RR Lyrae sample: cycle-to-cyle variations and additional modes
We analyzed the long and short cadence light curves of the Kepler non-Blazhko RRab stars. We prepared the Fourier spectra, the Fourier amplitude and phase variation functions, time-frequency
