DescriptionWe are using several large codes to search the photometric database from the Kepler satellite for stars that exhibit flares and starspots, to characterize the flare and starspot behavior and to extract information on starspot locations and properties using transiting planets as probes of stellar surface brightness variations. The XSEDE resources will enable this project to proceed much more quickly than with the resources at our home institutions.
