Why bother with asteroseismology while studying exoplanets? There are several answers to this question. Asteroseismology and exoplanetary sciences have much in common and the synergy between the two opens up new aspects in both fields. These fields and stellar activity, when taken together, allow maximum extraction of information from exoplanet space missions. Asteroseismology of the host star has already proved its value in a number of exoplanet systems by its unprecedented precision in… 
Asteroseismic potential of CHEOPS
Context. Asteroseismology has been impressively boosted during the last decade mainly thanks to space missions such as Kepler/K2 and CoRoT. This has a large impact, in particular, in exoplanetary
Pulsating Components in Binary and Multiple Stellar Systems --- A Catalog of Oscillating Binaries
We present an up-to-date catalog of pulsating binaries, i.e. the binary and multiple stellar systems containing pulsating components, along with a statistics on them. Compared to the earlier
Asteroseismology of stars on the upper main sequence
I review the properties of pulsators located on the upper main sequence in the HR diagram and discuss asteroseismic inferences on the internal structure of stars of spectral type A and B. Special


What do stars tell us about planets? Asteroseismology of exoplanet-host stars
Studying the internal structure of exoplanet-host stars compared to that of similar stars without detected planets is particularly important for the understanding of planetary formation. The observed
Asteroseismic Investigation of Known Planet Hosts in the Kepler Field
In addition to its great potential for characterizing extra-solar planetary systems, the Kepler Mission is providing unique data on stellar oscillations. A key aspect of Kepler asteroseismology is
Kepler Asteroseismology Program: Introduction and First Results
ABSTRACT.Asteroseismology involves probing the interiors of stars and quantifying their global properties, such as radius and age, through observations of normal modes of oscillation. The technical
One of the persistent complications in searches for transiting exoplanets is the low percentage of the detected candidates that ultimately prove to be planets, which significantly increases the load
Asteroseismology of the planet-hosting star μ Arae I. The acoustic spectrum
We present HARPS spectroscopy of μ Arae (HD 160691) performed for studying the origin of the metallicity excess in this planet-hosting stars. The asteroseismologic campaign led to the previously
Radius determination of solar-type stars using asteroseismology: what to expect from the Kepler mission
For distant stars, as observed by the NASA Kepler satellite, parallax information is currently of fairly low quality and is not complete. This limits the precision with which the absolute sizes of
The Asteroseismic potential of Kepler : first results for solar-type stars
We present preliminary asteroseismic results from Kepler on three G-type stars. The observations, made at one-minute cadence during the first 33.5 days of science operations, reveal high
The EXOTIME Targets HS 0702+6043 and HS 0444+0458
Pulsations in subdwarf B (sdB) stars are an important tool to constrain the evolutionary status of these evolved objects. Interestingly, the same data used for this asteroseismological approach can
Measurements of Stellar Properties through Asteroseismology: A Tool for Planet Transit Studies
Abstract Oscillations occur in stars of most masses and essentially all stages of evolution. Asteroseismology is the study of the frequencies and other properties of stellar oscillations, from which
Asteroseismology of exoplanets host stars: the special case of ι Horologii (HD 17051)
Aims. This paper presents detailed analysis and modelisation of the star HD 17051 (alias ι  Hor), which appears to be a specially interesting case among exoplanet host stars. Like most of these
