An illustration of the output from our synthetic spot model light curve generator, used to validate our period-finding approach. (a) Compares a one-quarter light curve for a real star with a 3.8 d period (KIC 4912088, Quarter 6) with (c) model output for a star with similar rotation period and Kepler magnitude. (b, d) Repeats the comparison for a star with a 28 d period (KIC 7269388, Quarter 3).
