This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:The aim of the project is to study fast stochastic variability generated by mass accretion in cosmic objects, where the main drive mechanism is disc driven accretion, i.e. (for our current focus) cataclysmic interacting binary stars with a white dwarf, X-ray binaries with black holes, or active galactic nuclei with a supermassive black hole in the center. This stochastic flickering do not originate only from one source and has a complicated morphology. The proposed project aims to study the frequency spectrum of variability and their typical shot profile in order to identify the source. Since all of the objects mentioned have the same physical object or process as the main engine, the flickering morphology must also have common elements. Our goal is to look for these common features and to create a complex concept of flickering for all objects. To that end, we will use high-quality,extensive and multi-frequency data from space missions such as Kepler and XMM-Newton.
