YOLDAş, E.  and  DAL, H. A.. On the chromospheric activity nature of a low-mass close binary: KIC 12004834. Rev. mex. astron. astrofis [online]. 2019, vol.55, n.1, pp.73-92. ISSN 0185-1101.

We study the nature of the chromospheric activity of an eclipsing binary KIC 12004834, using Kepler data. We analyse the light curve of the system, the sinusoidal variations at out-of-eclipses and detected flare events. The secondary component’s temperature is found to be 4001±11 K, the mass ratio is 0.743±0.001, and the orbital inclination is 75º.89±0º.03. The analysis indicates a stellar spot effect on the variation. Moreover, the OPEA model has been derived over 149 flares. The saturation level called P lateau value, is found to be 2.093±0.236 s. The flare number per hour (known as flare frequency N1) is found to be 0.06644 h-1, while the flare-equivalent duration per hour (known as flare frequency N2) is found to be 0.59 second/hour. According to these results, KIC 12004834 is a very low-mass close binary system with high level of flare activity.
