Title: Evolution and Seismic Tools for Stellar ...

Publisher: Springer-Verlag Gmbh Dez 2008

Publication Date: 2008

Binding: Buch

Book Condition: Neu


Neuware - This volume is a collection of original articles published by the Astrophysics and Space Science Journal. These are the result of the work initiated in 2002 with the aim to - tensively test, compare and optimize the numerical tools used to calculate stellar models and their oscillation frequencies. This effort took place under the activities of the 'CoRoT Evolution and Seismic Tools Activity' (CoRoT/ESTA-of the Seismology Working Group of the CoRoT Mission . It has been organized through the participation of the European Space Agency (ESA) in this Fren- led mission, following the appointment by ESA of a Co-Investigator on Stellar Models for the CoRoT Team. The volume includes (i) articles describing most of the evolution and seismic codes currently used in the context of Helio- and Astero-Seismology, (ii) articles reporting the results of the detailed comparisons of the codes carried out over the period 2002-2007 and (iii) works discussing grids of stellar evolutionary tracks, models, and frequencies, produced for supporting the CoRoT mission. The rst paper of the collection discusses the overall aim and methodology of the work while the last paper discusses some of the open questions that still require further work in the future. 261 pp. Englisch.

Synopsis: 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.
