Abstract

The recent asteroseismic data from the CoRoT and Kepler missions have provided an entirely new basis for investigating stellar properties. This has led to a rapid development in techniques for analysing such data, although it is probably fair to say that we are still far from having the tools required for the full use of the potential of the observations. Here I provide a brief overview of some of the issues related to the interpretation of asteroseismic data (© 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
