Chapters from seven eminent scientists in residence at the twenty-second Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics provide a wide-ranging and up-to-date overview of the theoretical, experimental and analytical tools for carrying out research using asteroseismological observations, tools and inferences.
About the Author
Pere L. Pallé is a pioneering astrophysicist in the field of helioseismology and head of the IAC's Research Group for Helio- and Asteroseismology. He completed his undergraduate studies and PhD at the University of La Laguna, Spain, and is deeply involved in the deployment, operation and scientific exploitation of the first earth-based international helioseismology networks (BiSON, IRIS, GONG), space missions (such as GOLF/SoHO), and asteroseismology networks (SONG). His research is focused on the instrumentation, analysis and interpretation of solar and stellar internal structures and dynamics by means of seismology tools.
