Abstract:

We analyse our new and our previously published optical photometric data on DI Cep, a classical T Tau star. We study the variability of optical brightness with different temporal and amplitude characteristics. On a long-term scale, DI Cep shows 14-19 year cycles of variations with a magnitude of amplitude from 0.1 to 0.5 in different cycles. We also found a period of 9.185 days in the variations in the U-V colour. Probably, this period is connected with the rotation of a hot spot on DI Cep.
