The detection of radial and non-radial solar-like oscillations in hundreds of thousands of G-K giants with CoRoT and Kepler is paving the line for certain experiences of stellar populations within the Galaxy. The to be had common seismic constraints enable principally model-independent choice of stellar radii and lots more and plenty, and will be used to figure out the location and age of millions of stars in several areas of the Milky method, and of giants belonging to open clusters. one of these shut connection among stellar evolution, Galactic evolution, and asteroseismology opens a brand new very promising gate in our figuring out of stars and galaxies.
This booklet represents a common development from the gathering of overview papers awarded within the e-book 'Red Giants as Probes of the constitution and Evolution of the Milky Way', which seemed within the Astrophysics and house technology court cases sequence in 2012. This sequel quantity comprises assessment papers on spectroscopy, seismology of purple giants, open questions in Galactic astrophysics, and discusses first effects accomplished through combining photometric/spectroscopic and seismic constraints on populations of stars saw by means of CoRoT and Kepler. The e-book additionally reviews on discussions among specialist researchers in Galactic evolution, experts in stellar constitution and asteroseismology, and key representatives of in depth ground-based spectroscopic surveys equivalent to APOGEE and the ESO-GAIA Spectroscopic Survey, which might function a roadmap for destiny endeavours during this box of research.
