We review some major, open issues in the current modelling of low and intermediate mass, main sequence stars based on seismological studies. In the present paper, the solar case is discussed together with current problems that are common to the Sun and stars with a structure similar to that of the Sun. Several additional issues specific to main sequence stars other than the Sun are reviewed and illustrated with a few stars observed with CoRoT in a companion paper.

Asteroseismology of Solar-Type and Red-Giant Stars
We are entering a golden era for stellar physics driven by satellite and telescope observations of unprecedented quality and scope. New insights on stellar evolution and stellar interiors physics are
Inversions of Stellar Structure From Asteroseismic Data
The advent of space-based photometry missions in the early 21st century enabled the application to asteroseismic data of advanced inference techniques until then restricted to the field of
Seismic diagnostics for transport of angular momentum in stars. I. Rotational splittings from the pre-main sequence to the red-giant branch.
Context. Rotational splittings are currently measured for several main sequence stars and a large number of red giants with the space mission Kepler. This will provide stringent constraints on
Stellar oscillations. II The non-adiabatic case
A leap forward has been performed due to the space-borne missions, MOST, CoRoT and Kepler. They provided a wealth of observational data, and more precisely oscillation spectra, which have been (and
Particle-physics constraints from the globular cluster M5: neutrino dipole moments ?
Stellar evolution is modified if energy is lost in a “dark channel” similar to neutrino emission. Comparing modified stellar evolution sequences with observations provides some of the most

Solar-like Oscillations
Abstract The five-minute oscillations in the Sun have provided a wealth of information about the solar interior. After many attempts, positive detections of similar oscillations in solar-type stars
Effects of rotational mixing on the asteroseismic properties of solar-type stars
Context. Observations of solar-like oscillations obtained either from the ground or from space stimulated the study of the effects of various physical processes on the modelling of solar-type stars.
Correcting Stellar Oscillation Frequencies for Near-Surface Effects
In helioseismology, there is a well-known offset between observed and computed oscillation frequencies. This offset is known to arise from improper modeling of the near-surface layers of the Sun, and
The Current State of Solar Modeling
Data from the GONG project and other helioseismic experiments reveal subtle errors in the models, such as an excess in sound speed just beneath the convection zone, which is plausible that the sound-speed differences reflect weak mixing in stellar interiors.
New generation stellar models with rotation and internal gravity waves: The Li dip revisited
In this paper we explore the consequences of the interaction between internal gravity waves, rotation-induced mixing and atomic diffusion on the rotation profile and internal element distribution of
Stellar turbulence and mode physics
An overview of selected topical problems on modelling oscillation properties in solar-like stars is presented. High-quality oscillation data from both space-borne intensity observations and
Rotational mixing in low-mass stars. I Effect of the mu-gradients in main sequence and subgiant Pop I stars
We present a first set of results concerning stellar evolution of rotating low-mass stars. Our models include fully consistent transport of angular momentum and chemicals due to the combined action
Prospects for asteroseismology
The observational basis for asteroseismology is being dramatically strengthened, through more than two years of data from the CoRoT satellite, the flood of data coming from the Kepler mission and, in
Impact of Transport and Dynamical Processes Upon Stellar Oscillation Frequencies
In order to prepare the theoretical interpretation of the oscillation frequencies detected by CoRoT, comparisons of results from standard stellar models by the ESTA group have proven to be very
Stellar evolution with rotation and magnetic fields - IV. The solar rotation profile
We examine the generation of a magnetic field in a solar-like star and its effects on the internal distribution of the angular velocity. We suggest that the evolution of a rotating star with magnetic
