Contents 1 Introducing Asteroseismology. Understanding the stars is the bedrock of modern astrophysics.



Classicalspectroscopy,photometry,astrometryandinterferometryof stars have traditionally been used as observational constraints to deduce the internal stellar physics. Their collective expertise encompasses all aspects of asteroseismology. Selected pages Page Yetitishardtoimaginethatonesetofparameters is appropriate for the vast range of stars.

The situation is even more worrisome for unknown aspects of the physics and dynamics in stars. Asteroseismology Astronomy and Astrophysics Library.

Kurtz No preview available – Stars ionize the interstellar medium and re-ionized the early intergalactic medium. There is a dearth of observational constraints on sateroseismology processes, thus solar values areoftenassignedtothem.

Their research teams enjoy international recognition and are heavily involved in various ground-based and satellite projects on asteroseismology. Understanding stellar structure and evolution is fundamental.

Unfortunately, these types of observations only allow the tuning of the basic common physics laws under stellar conditions with relatively poor precision. Account Options Sign in.
