Abstract: Our knowledge of the magnetic activity of stars is mostly based on the study of the Sun and some spectroscopic surveys of a few hundreds of stars. However, the detailed mechanisms of the solar magnetic activity cycle are not fully understood. With the Kepler mission that is providing exquisite photometric data for tens of thousands of stars monitored continuously for more than three years, we can study changes in the light curves that can be related to magnetic activity. We show here a few examples of stars for which we did a time-frequency analysis to look for this signature.
