  • Provides the fundamentals of astroseismology with a focus on waves caused by stellar rotation and by stellar convection.
  • Gives the necessary theoretical background to interpret observations by space experiments such as CoRoT and Kepler
  • Synthesizes the results of work carried out by a collaboration of several international teams
This volume synthesizes the results of work carried out by several international teams of the SIROCO (Seismology for
Rotation and Convection) collaboration. It provides the theoretical background required to interpret the huge quantity of high-quality observational data recently provided by space experiments such as CoRoT and Kepler.
Asteroseismology allows astrophysicists to test, to model and to understand stellar structure and evolution as never before.
The chapters in this book address the two groups of topics summarized as "Stellar Rotation and Associated Seismology" as well as "Stellar Convection and Associated Seismology". The book offers the reader solid theoretical background knowledge and adapted seismic diagnostic techniques.
