Statistical analysis of variability properties of the Kepler blazar W2R 1926+42

26 Apr 2018 Li Yutong Hu Shaoming Wiita Paul J. Gupta Alok C.

We analyzed Kepler light curves of the blazar W2R 1926+42 that provided nearly continuous coverage from quarter 11 through quarter 17 (589 days between 2011 and 2013) and examined some of their flux variability properties. We investigate the possibility that the light curve is dominated by a large number of individual flares and adopt exponential rise and decay models to investigate the symmetry properties of flares...
