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

Due to the New England winter storm currently affecting the area, phone coverage at the AAVSO may be much reduced until Wednesday. The staff is still available via email, and we suggest using that method to contact us if you need assistance.

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,
