Stars arethe tracersofthe dynamics ofthe Universe,gravitationallyimplying much more The chemical enrichment of our Milky Way and of the Universe withallelementsheavierthanlithiumoriginatesintheinteriorsofstars.

Stars ionize the interstellar medium and re-ionized the early intergalactic medium.

The situation is even more worrisome for unknown aspects of the physics and dynamics in stars. E Asymptotic Theory of Stellar Oscillations. Unfortunately, these types of observations only allow the tuning of the basic common physics laws under stellar conditions with relatively poor precision.

There is a dearth of observational constraints on these processes, thus solar values areoftenassignedtothem. Yetitishardtoimaginethatonesetofparameters is appropriate for the vast range of stars. My library Help Advanced Book Search.

Understanding the stars is the bedrock of modern astrophysics. Account Options Sign in. Kurtz No preview available – D Adiabatic Oscillations in an Isothermal Atmosphere. Understanding stellar structure and evolution is fundamental.

Selected pages Page Their collective expertise encompasses all aspects of asteroseismlogy. Their research teams enjoy international recognition and are heavily involved in various ground-based and satellite projects on asteroseismology.

Asteroseismology Astronomy and Astrophysics Library. While stellar structure and evolution are understood in general terms, we lack important physical ingredients, despite extensive research during recent decades. Stars are the source of life. Classicalspectroscopy,photometry,astrometryandinterferometryof stars have traditionally been used as observational constraints to deduce the internal stellar physics.
