The role of dominant modes in asteroseismology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Differences between helio- and asteroseismology are overviewed from observational point of view. Schematic amplitude spectra are presented for a sample of δ Scuti stars (30 cases) with well-determined frequency and amplitude solution (based mostly on multisite international campaigns). Frequency range changes from star to star. Modes are excited on different amplitude levels. However, according to the composite schematic spectrum of the whole sample, the dominant (highest amplitude) modes are concentrated in a narrow frequency range independent from the difference in physical parameters. Two extreme cases (θ Tue and XX Pyx) were localized on the low amplitude tail toward high frequencies. The binary nature and the resonance of the dominant pulsational and orbital periods are mentioned as a possible reason of the unusual amplitude behaviour. Based on synthetic data an examination has been done on the contribution of dominant modes to the star's light variation. Attention is called to the importance of theoretical investigation of dominant (highest amplitude) modes in the golden future of asteroseismology. The non-radial, non-linear stellar modells are urged.
