Network in Neutrinos, Nuclear Astrophysics, and Symmetries (N3AS) Seminar
Asteroseismology: diving deep into stars
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Place: Join Zoom Meeting Meeting ID: 912 3071 4547
Speaker: Prof. Conny Aerts , KU Leuven, Radboud University, and MPIA
Abstract: Asteroseismology has been bringing breakthrough science since more than a decade now. In this webinar, 2022 Kavli and 2024 Crafoord laureate Conny Aerts will introduce the basic principles of asteroseismology and explain its capacity to probe stellar interiors. It will be shown how applications to sun-like stars and red giants feed exoplanetary and galactic science. We also cover recent applications to stars rotating much faster than the Sun. We discuss how gravito-inertial asteroseismology offers to estimate the internal rotation and chemical mixing deep inside stars, with major implications for stellar evolution. We end with exciting future opportunities for this booming research field of astrophysics.
