    Asteroseismology in Red-Giant Stars
    from 30 Jul 2012 through 3 Aug 2012

 

The CoRoT and the Kepler space missions are dedicated instruments for asteroseismology. Both satellites are currently observing a large number of oscillating red-giant stars with an unprecedented photometric accuracy and duration. The observations reveal an amazing wealth of oscillation signatures in the time series of these stars. The staggering amount of details that can be seen in the Fourier spectra offers new opportunities to scrutinize this stage of stellar evolution, but at the same time also poses new challenges. During this workshop we will try to push forward the state-of-the-art astrophysical, computational, and statistical methodology to analyse and interpret the data.

 

We aim to perform an effective evaluation and testing of existing and new methodologies for the interpretation of ultra-high precision time series of red giants, and to improve our understanding of the observed oscillations in terms of the internal stellar structure.
