The detection of radial and non-radial solar-like oscillations in millions of G-K giants with CoRoT and Kepler is paving the line for distinct experiences of stellar populations within the Galaxy. The to be had general 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 hundreds of thousands of stars in several areas of the Milky means, and of giants belonging to open clusters. any such shut connection among stellar evolution, Galactic evolution, and asteroseismology opens a brand new very promising gate in our knowing of stars and galaxies.
This booklet represents a normal development from the gathering of overview papers offered within the booklet 'Red Giants as Probes of the constitution and Evolution of the Milky Way', which seemed within the Astrophysics and area technological know-how lawsuits sequence in 2012. This sequel quantity comprises assessment papers on spectroscopy, seismology of purple giants, open questions in Galactic astrophysics, and discusses first effects completed by means of combining photometric/spectroscopic and seismic constraints on populations of stars saw by way of CoRoT and Kepler. The e-book additionally stories on discussions among specialist researchers in Galactic evolution, experts in stellar constitution and asteroseismology, and key representatives of intensive ground-based spectroscopic surveys similar to APOGEE and the ESO-GAIA Spectroscopic Survey, which might function a roadmap for destiny endeavours during this box of research.
