Asteroseismology free pdf Our understanding of stars has grown significantly due to recent advances in asteroseismology, the stellar analog of helioseismology, the study of the Sun's acoustic wave oscillations. Using ground-based and satellite observatories to measure the frequency spectra of starlight, researchers are able to probe beneath a star's surface and map its interior structure. This volume provides a wide-ranging and up-to-date overview of the theoretical, experimental and analytical tools for carrying out front-line research in stellar physics using asteroseismological observations, tools and inferences. Chapters from seven eminent scientists in residence at the twenty-second Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics examine the interior of our Sun relative to data collected from distant stars, how to measure the fundamental parameters of single field stars, diffusion processes, and the effects of rotation on stellar structures. The volume also provides detailed treatments of modeling and computing programs, providing astronomers and graduate students a practical, methods-based guide.

About Pere L. Palle

Pere L. Palle is a pioneering astrophysicist in the field of helioseismology and head of the IAC's Research Group for Helio- and Asteroseismology. He completed his undergraduate studies and PhD at the University of La Laguna, Spain, and is deeply involved in the deployment, operation and scientific exploitation of the first earth-based international helioseismology networks (BiSON, IRIS, GONG), space missions (such as GOLF/SoHO), and asteroseismology networks (SONG). His research is focused on the instrumentation, analysis and interpretation of solar and stellar internal structures and dynamics by means of seismology tools. Cesar Esteban is a lecturer at the Astrophysics Department of the University of La Laguna and researcher at the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias in Spain. He completed his undergraduate studies and PhD at the University of La Laguna, where he was head of the Astrophysics Department from 2010 to 2011. He researches the physical structure and chemical composition of ionized nebulae, the chemical evolution of galaxies, and the astronomy of ancient cultures. He coordinates different research projects and is a member of various scientific societies and governing boards.
