Lecture Notes in Physics, vol Author: P. Demarque, D. B. Guenther. Asteroseismology or astroseismology is the study of oscillations in stars. Because a star's different oscillation modes are sensitive to different parts of the star, they inform astronomers about the internal structure of the star, which is otherwise not directly possible from overall properties like brightness and surface temperature. Seismology is a highly effective tool for investigating the internal structure of the Earth. Similar techniques have also successfully been used to study other planetary bodies (planetary seismology), the Sun (helioseismology), and other stars (asteroseismology).Format: Hardcover.

Despite obvious differences between stars and planetary bodies, these disciplines share many similarities and together form a. Gough D.O. () Seismology of the Sun and Stars.

These results suggest that the interior of other Sun-like stars also rotate in much the same way as our own Sun.

Helioseismology, a term coined by Douglas Gough, is the study of the structure and dynamics of the Sun through its oscillations. These are principally caused by sound waves that are continuously driven and damped by convection near the Sun's surface. It is similar to geoseismology, or asteroseismology (also coined by Gough), which are respectively the studies of the Earth or stars through. The following topics were dealt with: resonant mode characterisation; seismology of Sun-like stars: techniques and strategies; solar structure: models and inversions; local seismology, active regions and magnetic effects; solar dynamics: large-scale and small-scale flows; temporal variations of solar oscillation characteristics: short- and long-term changes and mode excitation and damping.
