Scaled oscillation frequencies and echelle diagrams as a tool for comparative asteroseismology.


Abstract (from CDS):

We describe a method for comparing the frequency spectra of oscillating stars. We focus on solar-like oscillations, in which mode frequencies generally follow a regular pattern. On the basis that oscillation frequencies of similar stars scale homologously, we show how to display two stars on a single échelle diagram. The result can be used to infer the ratio of their mean densities very precisely, without reference to theoretical models. In addition, data from the star with the better signal-to-noise ratio can be used to confirm weaker modes and reject sidelobes in data from the second star. Finally, we show that scaled échelle diagrams provide a solution to the problem of ridge identification in F-type stars, such as those observed by the CoRoT space mission.
