We present a brief overview of the history of attempts to obtain a clear detection of solar-like oscillations in cluster stars, and discuss the results on the first clear detection, which was made by the Kepler Asteroseismic Science Consortium (KASC) Working Group 2 (© 2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)

Asteroseismic analysis of eight solar-like oscillating evolved stars in the open cluster NGC 6811
The Kepler space telescope has provided exquisite data with which to perform asteroseismic analysis on evolved star ensembles. Studying star clusters offers significant insight into stellarExpand
Characteristics of solar-like oscillations of clusters simulated by stellar population synthesis
Using a stellar population-synthesis method, we studied the distributions of νmax and Δν of simulated clusters with various ages and metallicities. Except for the confirmed peak (RC peak) of Δν ofExpand
Using asteroseismology to determine membership of stellar clusters observed by the Kepler Mission
If we can measure the speed of sound in a gas, we have information about the pressure and density of that gas. From the equation of state, we can constrain the temperature and chemical composition.Expand
We studied solar-like oscillations in 115 red giants in the three open clusters, NGC 6791, NGC 6811, and NGC 6819, based on photometric data covering more than 19 months with NASA's Kepler spaceExpand
Characteristics of solar-like oscillations of secondary red-clump stars
We calculated the populations of core-helium-burning (CHeB) stars and found that secondary red-clump (SRC) stars can form a SRC peak in the distributions of the frequency of maximum seismic amplitudeExpand
Study of KIC 8561221 observed by Kepler: an early red giant showing depressed dipolar modes ?
Context. The continuous high-precision photometric observations provided by the CoRoT and Kepler space missions have allowed us to understand the structure and dynamics of red giants better usingExpand

Asteroseismology with the WIRE satellite
I give a summary of results from the WIRE satellite, which has been used to observe bright stars from 1999–2000 and 2003–2006. The WIRE targets are monitored for up to five weeks with a duty cycle ofExpand
A search for solar-like oscillations in the stars of M67
Results are presented from a large observational project directed toward the detection of solar-like oscillations in an ensemble of open cluster stars. Seven groups collaborated in 1992 January toExpand
Detection of Solar-like Oscillations from Kepler Photometry of the Open Cluster NGC 6819
Asteroseismology of stars in clusters has been a long-sought goal because the assumption of a common age, distance, and initial chemical composition allows strong tests of the theory of stellarExpand
We present analyses of variability in the red giant stars in the metal-poor globular cluster NGC 6397, based on data obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope. We use a nonstandard data reductionExpand
Multisite campaign on the open cluster M67 – II. Evidence for solar-like oscillations in red giant stars
Measuring solar-like oscillations in an ensemble of stars i n a cluster, holds promise for testing stellar structure and evolution more stringently than just fitting parameters to single field stars.Expand
A search for solar-like oscillations in K giants in the globular cluster M 4
Context. To expand the range in the colour–magnitude diagram where asteroseismology can be applied, we organized a photometry campaign to find evidence for solar-like oscillations in giant stars inExpand
Excitation of solar-like oscillations across the HR diagram
Aims. We extend semi-analytical computations of excitation rates for solar oscillation modes to those of other solar-like oscillating stars to compare them with recent observations Methods. NumericalExpand
Evolution of asymptotic giant branch stars. II. Optical to far-infrared isochrones with improved TP-
We present a large set of theoretical isochrones, whose distinctive features mostly reside on the greatly-improved treatment of the thermally-pulsing asymptotic giant branch (TP-AGB) phase.Expand
K Giants in 47 Tucanae: Detection of a New Class of Variable Stars
We report the discovery of variability among K giants in the globular cluster 47 Tucanae, using a time series of U exposures with the Hubble Space Telescope. The variables lie along a narrow band inExpand
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 technicalExpand
