Inverse Problems in Asteroseismology

08/20/2018 ∙ by Earl Patrick Bellinger, et al. ∙ 0

Asteroseismology allows us to probe the internal structure of stars through their global modes of oscillation. Thanks to missions such as the NASA Kepler space observatory, we now have high-quality asteroseismic data for nearly 100 solar-type stars. In this thesis, new techniques to measure the ages, masses, and radii of stars are presented, as well as a way to infer their internal structure.
