Unfortunately, these types of observations only allow the tuning of the basic common physics laws under stellar conditions with relatively poor precision.

While stellar structure and evolution are understood in general terms, we lack important physical ingredients, despite extensive research during asteroseiskology decades.

Contents 1 Introducing Asteroseismology. Selected pages Page The situation is even more worrisome for unknown aspects of the physics and dynamics in stars.

There is a dearth of observational constraints on these processes, thus solar values areoftenassignedtothem. Their collective expertise encompasses asteroseisnology aspects of asteroseismology.
