Our goal is to analyse the detailed behaviour present in the light curve and interpret it in terms of excited-mode frequencies. After describing the noise properties in detail, we use various time series analyses and fitting techniques to model the CoRoT light curve, for various physical assumptions. We apply statistical goodness-of-fit criteria that allow us to select the most appropriate physical model fit to the data. We conclude that the light-curve model based on nonlinear resonant frequency and phase locking provides the best representation of the data. Interpretation of the residuals is dependent on the chosen physical model used to prewhiten the data. Our observational results constitute a fruitful starting point for detailed seismic stellar modelling of this large-amplitude and evolved beta Cep star. Description: The tables represent the results of the frequency analysis of various models: under assumption of stable, long-lasting and independent frequencies with constant amplitudes and phases, we arrive at the list in table1.dat. When assuming dependency in the form of combination frequencies, we arrive at the list presented in table2.dat. When allowing for time-dependent amplitudes and phases, we finally get tables3-10.
