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

We recently released a significant update to the backend systems for the AAVSO website. While most of the bugs introduced by this update have been fixed, there may still be problems we haven't fixed. If you run into a problem, please email

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,
