Evolution and Seismic Tools for Stellar Astrophysics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume of original articles is the result of the work initiated in 2002 with the aim to extensively test, compare and optimize the numerical tools used to calculate stellar models and their oscillation frequencies.This collection of papers provides a unique reference that covers 10 evolution codes and 9 oscillation codes. Most of these have been used to produce numerous results published over the years and have never before been fully described in literature. The comparisons that were carried out over a period of 4 years resulted in a comprehensive study that covered the numerical aspects of the different codes and the implementation of the physics they use, and have provided the basis for further development of the codes. The same work has also allowed for a detailed characterization of the precision and expected shortfalls of the models produced by these tools. Consequently, this volume is expected to be of great relevance for researchers and research students working on the modeling of stars and on the implementation of seismic test of stellar models. Moreover, it is expected to have a high impact on the analysis of the data acquired by (ongoing and future) ground-based instruments and space missions in helio- and astero-seismology.
