We present the third and final data release of the K2 Galactic Archaeology Program (K2 GAP) for Campaigns C1–C8 and C10–C18. We provide asteroseismic radius and mass coefficients, κ R and κ M , for ∼19,000 red giant stars, which translate directly to radius and mass given a temperature. As such, K2 GAP DR3 represents the largest asteroseismic sample in the literature to date. K2 GAP DR3 stellar parameters are calibrated to be on an absolute parallactic scale based on Gaia DR2, with red giant… 

HD-TESS: An Asteroseismic Catalog of Bright Red Giants within TESS Continuous Viewing Zones

We present HD-TESS, a catalog of 1709 bright (V ∼ 3–10) red giants from the Henry Draper (HD) Catalog with asteroseismic measurements based on photometry from NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey

Mass Matters: No Evidence for Ubiquitous Lithium Production in Low-mass Clump Giants

Known sources of lithium (Li) in the universe include the Big Bang, novae, asymptotic giant branch stars, and cosmic-ray spallation. During their longer-lived evolutionary phases, stars are not

Mixed-mode Asteroseismology of Red Giant Stars Through the Luminosity Bump

Most current models of low-mass red giant stars do not reproduce the observed position of the red giant branch luminosity bump, a diagnostic of the maximum extent of the convective envelope during



The K2 Galactic Archaeology Program Data Release 2: Asteroseismic Results from Campaigns 4, 6, and 7

Studies of Galactic structure and evolution have benefited enormously from Gaia kinematic information, though additional, intrinsic stellar parameters like age are required to best constrain Galactic

Galactic Archaeology with asteroseismology and spectroscopy: Red giants observed by CoRoT and APOGEE

With the advent of the space missions CoRoT and Kepler, it has become feasible to determine precise asteroseismic masses and ages for large samples of red-giant stars. In this paper, we present the


NASA's K2 mission is observing tens of thousands of stars along the ecliptic, providing data suitable for large-scale asteroseismic analyses to inform galactic archaeology studies. Its first campaign

An Intermediate-age Alpha-rich Galactic Population in K2

We explore the relationships between the chemistry, ages, and locations of stars in the Galaxy using asteroseismic data from the K2 mission and spectroscopic data from the Apache Point Galactic

Testing asteroseismology with Gaia DR2: hierarchical models of the Red Clump

Asteroseismology provides fundamental stellar parameters independent of distance, but subject to systematics under calibration. Gaia DR2 has provided parallaxes for a billion stars, which are offset

Galactic Archaeology with asteroseismic ages: Evidence for delayed gas infall in the formation of the Milky Way disc

Context. Precise stellar ages from asteroseismology have become available and can help to set stronger constraints on the evolution of the Galactic disc components. Recently, asteroseismology has

The K2 Galactic Caps Project – going beyond the Kepler field and ageing the Galactic disc

Analyses of data from spectroscopic and astrometric surveys have led to conflicting results concerning the vertical characteristics of the Milky Way. Ages are often used to provide clarity, but

Asteroseismology and Gaia: Testing Scaling Relations Using 2200 Kepler Stars with TGAS Parallaxes

We present a comparison of parallaxes and radii from asteroseismology and Gaia DR1 (TGAS) for 2200 Kepler stars spanning from the main sequence to the red-giant branch. We show that previously

Mapping the Galactic Disk with the LAMOST and Gaia Red Clump Sample. V. On the Origin of the “Young” [α/Fe]-enhanced Stars

Using a sample of nearly 140,000 primary red-clump stars selected from the LAMOST and Gaia surveys, we have identified a large sample of “young” [α/Fe]-enhanced stars with stellar ages younger than

The Bayesian Asteroseismology Data Modeling Pipeline and Its Application to K2 Data

We present the Bayesian Asteroseismology data Modeling (BAM) pipeline, an automated asteroseismology pipeline that returns global oscillation parameters and granulation parameters from the analysis
