Abstract

The V= 4.48 F4main-sequence star Cyg is the brightest star observable in theKepler spacecraft field of view. Short-cadence (58.8 s) photometric data were obtained by Kepler during 2010 June− September. Preliminary analysis shows solar-like oscillations in the frequency range 1200− 2500 μHz. To interpret these data and to motivate further observations, we use observational constraints from the literature to construct stellar evolution and pulsation models for this star. We compare the observed large frequency ...
