In the study of solution properties and spectral features of random ergodic and periodic operators the integrated density of states (IDS), also known as spectral distribution function, plays and important role.

Consequently, if tidal interaction with their parent stars plays a role in the final orbits of planets, the difference in the period distribution of planets around G and F stars could have been caused by internal stellar structure differences.

The period-luminosity (PL) relation for Cepheids for nearly a century plays a crucial role in the cosmic distance ladder. A newer application of Cepheids is probing massive star evolution through measurements of the rates of period changes (see, e.g., Pietrukowicz 2001, Turner et al. 2006).
