Synopsis

Asteroseismic Data Analysis Foundations and Techniques by Sarbani Basu, William J. Chaplin

Studies of stars and stellar populations, and the discovery and characterization of exoplanets, are being revolutionized by new satellite and telescope observations of unprecedented quality and scope. Some of the most significant advances have been in the field of asteroseismology, the study of stars by observation of their oscillations. Asteroseismic Data Analysis gives a comprehensive technical introduction to this discipline. This book not only helps students and researchers learn about asteroseismology; it also serves as an essential instruction manual for those entering the field.The book presents readers with the foundational techniques used in the analysis and interpretation of asteroseismic data on cool stars that show solar-like oscillations. The techniques have been refined, and in some cases developed, to analyze asteroseismic data collected by the NASA Kepler mission. Topics range from the analysis of time-series observations to extract seismic data for stars to the use of those data to determine global and internal properties of the stars. Reading lists and problem sets are provided, and data necessary for the problem sets are available online.The first book to describe in detail the different techniques used to analyze the data on stellar oscillations, Asteroseismic Data Analysis offers an invaluable window into the hearts of stars.Introduces the asteroseismic study of stars and the theory of stellar oscillationsDescribes the analysis of observational (time-domain) dataExamines how seismic parameters are extracted from observationsExplores how stellar properties are determined from seismic dataLooks at the inverse problem, where frequencies are used to infer internal structures of stars

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Maggie Crane

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Lynda

You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.

Helen Jones

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

If you love reading, then you'll love Lovereading! Full of tips & info for every discerning reader.

Lynne Rapson

Lovereading does a stella job in promoting both new and established authors.

Iris Clements

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
