Seismic Inferences of solar and stellar structure
Main category
Natural Sciences (Astrophysics and Astrononmy)
The seismic study of the Sun and other stars offers a unique window into the interior of these stars. Helioseismic data have allowed us to determine the structure and dynamics of the Sun very precisely. In fact the high-precision data allow us to use the Sun as a laboratory to study properties of matter. Asteroseismology, the seismic study of other stars, has made tremendous progress in recent years because of missions such as CoRoT and Kepler. We are beginning to be able to use asteroseismic data to study the interiors of other stars. I discuss how and what we have learned about the Sun using helioseismic data, and how we have modified the techniques to make inferences about other stars and what we have learned about them so far.
