Abstract: Although flickering is one of the fundamental signatures of accretion, it is also the most poorly understood aspect of the accretion processes. A promising step towards a better understanding of flickering consists in using the eclipse mapping method to probe the surface distribution of the flickering sources. We report on the analysis of light curves of the dwarf nova and strong flicker V2051 Ophiuchi with eclipse mapping techniques to produce the first maps of the flickering brightness distribution in an accretion disc.
