Modeling of αCen and Procyon using VLTI observations

Abstract

We present a novel approach to model the nearby stars αCen A & B and Procyon A using asteroseismic and interferometric constraints. Using the VINCI instrument installed at the VLT Interferometer (VLTI), the angular diameters of the αCentauri system were measured with a relative precision of 0.2% and 0.6%, respectively. From these values, we derive linear… (More)
