Abstract
Asteroseismology studies the oscillations in stars and allows us to calculate with significant precision essential stellar parameters, such as the stellar mass, radius, and age. The most commonly used method to determine these parameters from seismic data is the forward modelling. Therefore, it is important to test thoroughly the results obtained from this method. In this talk we are going to present a new approach to look at the results of the forward modelling which allows us to differentiate the models obtained through that method and identify the ones that best represent the internal structure of the star.
