Asteroseismic Data Analysis

This chapter describes inversion techniques. Inversions of frequencies and frequency splittings of other stars are still in their infancy. However, inversions give model-independent estimates of stellar structure. The problem with comparing frequencies led to the development of inversion techniques that allow us to determine the structure of the Sun directly using solar frequencies almost independently of models. Inversions have since become the mainstay of helioseismic studies for several decades. It is not yet a part of the normal repertoire of asteroseismic analysis techniques, but that is likely to change as more precise and larger numbers of mode frequencies are extracted from asteroseismic data.

Keywords:   inversions, inversion techniques, frequency splittings, stellar structure, solar frequencies, mode frequencies
