Development of an Improved Mode Identification Formula For Pulsating Stars

Presented by Mr. Getachew MEKONNEN MENGISTIE on 9 Jul 2013 from 14:30 to 14:50

Session: Astro
Track: Track D1 - Astrophysics

Abstract

Medupe et al. (2009) developed a new formula for photometric mode identification by considering the shapes of eigen functions in A stars. We calculated opacity tables using ATLAS9 model atmosphere computer program and use this to fit the new formula to delta Scuti stars. In this talk, I am going to explain and review mode identification methods for pulsating stars and present the new improved photometric mode identification formula and our results.
