The asteroseismic modelling of solar-like stars has proved to be valuable in constraining dark matter. In this work, we study for the first time the influence of asymmetric dark matter (ADM) in the evolution of a subgiant star (KIC 8228742) by direct comparison with observational data. Both spectroscopic and seismic data are analysed with a new approach to the stellar calibration method, in which DM properties can also be considered as free inputs. In another phase of this study, a calibrated… Expand

Simulation of energy transport by dark matter scattering in stars
Asymmetric dark matter (ADM) that is captured in stars can act as an efficient conductor of heat. Small ADM-induced changes in a star’s temperature gradient are known to alter neutrino fluxes andExpand

Towards the use of asteroseismology to investigate the nature of dark matter
The annihilation of huge quantities of captured dark matter (DM) particles inside low-mass stars has been shown to change some of the stellar properties, such as the star’s effective temperature orExpand
ASTEROSEISMOLOGY OF THE SOLAR ANALOGS 16 Cyg A AND B FROM KEPLER OBSERVATIONS
The evolved solar-type stars 16 Cyg A and B have long been studied as solar analogs, yielding a glimpse into the future of our own Sun. The orbital period of the binary system is too long to provideExpand
The impact of composition choices on solar evolution: age, helio- and asteroseismology, and neutrinos
The Sun is the most studied and well-known star, and as such, solar fundamental parameters are often used to bridge gaps in the knowledge of other stars, when these are required for modelling.Expand
Asteroseismic constraints on Asymmetric Dark Matter: Light particles with an effective spin-dependent coupling
So far, direct detection searches have come empty handed in their quest for Dark Matter (DM). Meanwhile, asteroseismology arises as a complementary tool to study DM, as its accumulation in a star canExpand
Stellar convective cores as dark matter probes
The recent detection of a convective core in a main-sequence solar-type star is used here to test particular models of dark matter (DM) particles, those with masses and scattering cross sections inExpand
Stellar ages, masses, and radii from asteroseismic modeling are robust to systematic errors in spectroscopy
Context. The search for twins of the Sun and Earth relies on accurate characterization of stellar and the exoplanetary parameters age, mass, and radius. In the modern era of asteroseismology,Expand
ASTEROSEISMIC FUNDAMENTAL PROPERTIES OF SOLAR-TYPE STARS OBSERVED BY THE NASA KEPLER MISSION
We use asteroseismic data obtained by the NASA Kepler mission to estimate the fundamental properties of more than 500 main-sequence and sub-giant stars. Data obtained during the first 10 months ofExpand
Mixed modes in red giants: a window on stellar evolution
Context. The detection of oscillations with a mixed character in subgiants and red giants allows us to probe the physical conditions in their cores. Aims. With these mixed modes, we aim atExpand
Helium abundance in a sample of cool stars: measurements from asteroseismology
The structural stratification of a solar-type main sequence star primarily depends on its mass and chemical composition. The surface heavy element abundances of the solar-type stars are reasonablyExpand
Main sequence stars with asymmetric dark matter.
TLDR
The energy transport mechanism induced by DM particles can produce unusual conditions in the cores of main sequence stars, with effects which can potentially be used to probe DM properties. Expand
