The detection of radial and non-radial solar-like oscillations in hundreds of thousands of G-K giants with CoRoT and Kepler is paving the line for certain experiences of stellar populations within the Galaxy. The on hand ordinary seismic constraints permit mostly model-independent choice of stellar radii and lots more and plenty, and will be used to figure out the location and age of hundreds of thousands of stars in several areas of the Milky approach, and of giants belonging to open clusters. this kind of shut connection among stellar evolution, Galactic evolution, and asteroseismology opens a brand new very promising gate in our figuring out of stars and galaxies.
This booklet represents a normal development from the gathering of evaluation papers awarded within the ebook 'Red Giants as Probes of the constitution and Evolution of the Milky Way', which seemed within the Astrophysics and area technology court cases sequence in 2012. This sequel quantity comprises assessment papers on spectroscopy, seismology of crimson giants, open questions in Galactic astrophysics, and discusses first effects completed by way of combining photometric/spectroscopic and seismic constraints on populations of stars saw through CoRoT and Kepler. The booklet additionally experiences on discussions among specialist researchers in Galactic evolution, experts in stellar constitution and asteroseismology, and key representatives of in depth ground-based spectroscopic surveys comparable to APOGEE and the ESO-GAIA Spectroscopic Survey, which might function a roadmap for destiny endeavours during this box of research.

The aim of this Gazetteer and Atlas of Astronomy (GAA) is to record, outline and illustrate, for the 1st time, each named (as against only catalogued) item within the sky inside of a unmarried reference paintings to be used by means of the final reader, writers and editors facing astronomical issues, and people astronomers enthusiastic about any point of astronomical nomenclature.
Simon Murphy's thesis has major effect at the extensive use of the innovative Kepler undertaking information, resulting in a brand new figuring out in stellar astrophysics. It first presents a deep characterisation and comparability of the Kepler lengthy cadence and brief cadence facts, with specific perception into the Kepler relief pipeline.
Dieses Buch zeigt, wie spannend Astronomie sein kann. Mit einfachen Beobachtungen kann guy wichtige Fragen der Menschheit erörtern: Wie ist das Universum entstanden und wo ist unser Platz darin? Der Leser erhält praktische Informationen, um die Faszination des Nachthimmels selbst zu erleben: Welches Teleskop ist geeignet, welche info lassen sich damit auf den Himmelskörpern erkennen u.
