7.5.2 Properties of the input data

The input sources processed by the SVD-Solar-Like-SOS-Rotational-Modulation pipeline were selected from the catalogue of sources having at least 20 observations in the G band. From this catalogue, we selected the main sequence stars with a spectral type later then F5. This selection has been done by looking at the position of the stars in the MG vs. GBP-GRP diagram, and therfore the parallax of the star is needed. In order to limit the errors on the MG computation, we selected only stars with a relative error in parallax less than 20%. A second criterion used to select the input stars is based on the time sampling of G observations. As described in Distefano et al. (2012), the analysis of solar-like variables requires that the G and the GBP-GRP time-series can be segmented in small sub-series. The SVD-Solar-Like-SOS-Rotational-Modulation pipeline was employed to process only sources whose time-series can be split in at least two segments with a number of observations NG12. See Lanzafame et al. (2018) for more details on the selection procedure.
