Suggestions of Variable stars whose periodicity is most interesting....

The membership database is currently undergoing upgrading/testing. Web functions that involve an interface with the member database (webobs, etc.) may experience intermittent problems. We hope to have this issue resolved within 24 hours (by 5pm Eastern Time on October 1st or 12:00 UT). Thank you for your patience.

I am completing a data analysis projection applying fourier and/or wavelet techniques to astronomical data. I am not well versed in astronomy or astrophysics and I am hoping someone might have a suggestion about what kind of star (one in particular, or a collection of types) might be interesting to analyze with these techniques. In particular, I am hoping to use wavelets to denoise data and then apply fourier analysis to find a star's periodicity. Or I might use only wavelets to find a period.

Please help!

Thank you,
Megan
