A seismic scaling relation for stellar age

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review


A simple solar scaling relation for estimating the ages of main-sequence stars from asteroseismic and spectroscopic data is developed. New seismic scaling relations for estimating mass and radius are presented as well, including a purely seismic radius scaling relation (i.e. no dependence on temperature). The relations show substantial improvement over the classical scaling relations and perform similarly well to grid-based modelling.
