Abstract

We present our analysis of Kepler short cadence public data to search for stellar pulsations in M dwarfs. Theoretical calculations predict that these stars may suffer from a fundamental radial mode driven by the nuclear e mechanism. First results published thus far show no significant signal around the expected frequency of 36 c/d down to 1 ppt (parts per thousand). In this paper we include new results obtained from a sample of 86 stars, although a real number of M dwarfs after spectral classification turned out to be small. Unluckily, we have not detected any significant signal typically down to 1-10 ppm (parts per million) in M dwarfs and since the sample of these stars consists of 6 objects only, we cannot make any strong conclusion if the e mechanism drives perturbation in radius to propagate to a detectable amplitude at the surface. As a by-product of our work we provide a spectral classification of 86 Kepler objects, along with their variability and thus far unknown artifacts residing in Kepler photometry.
