The PLATO 2.0 mission
PLATO 2.0 has recently been selected for ESA’s M3 launch opportunity (2022/24). Providing accurate key planet parameters (radius, mass, density and age) in statistical numbers, it addressesExpand

Spin down of the core rotation in red giants
Context. The space mission Kepler provides us with long and uninterrupted photometric time series of red giants. We are now able to probe the rotational behaviour in their deep interiors using theExpand

Probing the core structure and evolution of red giants using gravity-dominated mixed modes observed with Kepler
Context. There are now more than 22 months of long-cadence data available for thousands of red giants observed with the Kepler space mission. Consequently, we are able to clearly resolve fine detailsExpand

New grids of ATLAS9 atmospheres I: Influence of convection treatments on model structure and on observable quantities
Received ; accepted Abstract. We present several new sets of grids of model stellar atmospheres computed with modified versions of the ATLAS9 code. Each individual set consists of several grids ofExpand

CoRoT Measures Solar-Like Oscillations and Granulation in Stars Hotter Than the Sun
Oscillations of the Sun have been used to understand its interior structure. The extension of similar studies to more distant stars has raised many difficulties despite the strong efforts of theExpand

Red-giant seismic properties analyzed with CoRoT
Context. The CoRoT 5-month long observation runs provide us with the opportunity to analyze a large variety of red-giant stars and derive their fundamental parameters from their asteroseismicExpand

Photometric amplitudes and phases of nonradial oscillation in rotating stars
Effects of rotational mode coupling on photometric parameters of stellar oscillations are studied. At moderate rotation rates, a strong coupling between modes of spherical harmonic degree, $\ell$,Expand

Gravity modes as a way to distinguish between hydrogen- and helium-burning red giant stars
Red giants are evolved stars that have exhausted the supply of hydrogen in their cores and instead burn hydrogen in a surrounding shell. Once a red giant is sufficiently evolved, the helium in theExpand

Characterization of the power excess of solar-like oscillations in red giants with Kepler
Context. The space mission Kepler provides us with long and uninterrupted photometric time series of red giants. This allows us to examine their seismic global properties and to compare these withExpand

Inferred acoustic rates of solar p modes from several helioseismic instruments
Acoustic rates of excitation of solar p modes can be estimated from observations in order to place constraints on the modelling of the excitation process and the layers where it occurs in the star.Expand
