Stellar variability and rotation in Kepler planetary transit search data

Abstract:

The recent space-based exoplanet transit searches, CoRoT and Kepler, have revolutionised the field of stellar variability. In this thesis I exploit the public Kepler data to characterise stellar variability, and study rotation periods.

For the study of stellar variability it is a complicated but necessary process to remove instrumental systematics while maintaining intrinsic stellar signal. I was involved in the development of a new correction method for systematic...
