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 in order to identify the source. Since all mentioned objects have the same physical process as the main engine, the flickering morphology must also have common features. Our goal is to look for these common features and to create a complex concept of flickering for all objects. For this purpose, we will use high-quality, extensive and multi-frequency data from space missions such as Kepler and XMM-Newton.
