Sounding the Stars: The Asteroseismology Revolution of Stellar Astrophysics
Daniel Huber



Our understanding of the structure and evolution of stars has implications on a wide variety of topics in astronomy, ranging from the properties of galaxies to exoplanet populations. Asteroseismology - the study of stellar oscillations - is a powerful tool to constrain the interior processes and fundamental properties of stars, and has undergone a dramatic evolution over the past decade driven by space-based telescopes such as NASA's Kepler Mission. In this talk I will highlight recent breakthrough discoveries in asteroseismology, focusing in particular on the interior structure, rotation rates and magnetic fields of red giant stars. I will furthermore discuss synergies between asteroseismology and exoplanet science to measure precise planet properties and determine the architectures of exoplanet systems. Finally, I will comment on the prospects for probing the chemo-dynamical history of stars and the occurrence rates of planets for stellar populations in our Galaxy using current and future missions such as K2, Gaia, TESS and PLATO.
