The Asteroseismic potential of Exoplanet Host Stars With TESS

TESS has excellent potential for detecting solar-like oscillations in stars. Code was written to calculate the probability of detecting global solar-like oscillations. With this code, the faintest magnitude for detecting these oscillations was found for stars with different masses and at different evolutionary stages, from the Main Sequence to the Red Giant Branch. These results show that only the very brightest Main Sequence targets (Ic<6.0) will be detected as asteroseismic stars with TESS. However, the asteroseismic yield is shown to greatly increase if Subgiant stars are included in the target list, to be observed at a cadence of 2 minutes.
