Title: COMPARISON OF PHOTOMETRIC VARIABILITY BEFORE AND AFTER STELLAR FLARES

The energy in the solar acoustic spectrum is known to be correlated with flares, but it is not known if the same is true for stellar flares. In order to answer this question, we have analyzed 73 flares in 39 solar-like stars. These flares were identified in the 854 solar-like stars observed by the Kepler spacecraft that have stellar parameters measured with asteroseismology. Though we were not able to identify a statistically significant enhancement of the energy in the high-frequency part of the post-flare acoustic spectra compared to the pre-flare spectra of these stars, we did identify a larger variability between the energy in the high-frequency part of the post- and pre-flare acoustic spectra compared to spectra taken at random times.
