Connecting Solar and stellar Variabilities (SOLVe)

The SOLVe group aims at connecting the related studies of solar and stellar variability based on the models originally developed for the Sun. Our goal is to answer the following questions:

  • How typical is the Sun as an active star?
  • What does stellar data tell us about the possible range of solar variability and consequently solar contribution to historical climate change?
  • How do stellar photometric variabilities depend on the main stellar parameters (e.g. age, effective temperature, metallicity)?
  • How can one determine the basic properties of stellar magnetic cycles from the records of stellar brightness variations (e.g. from the Kepler and CoRoT data)?
