New seismic analysis of the exoplanet-host star µ Arae.

SORIANO M. and VAUCLAIR S.

Abstract (from CDS):

We present detailed modelling of the exoplanet-host star µ Arae, using a new method for the asteroseismic analysis, and taking into account the new value recently derived for the Hipparcos parallax. The aim is to obtain precise parameters for this star and its internal structure, including constraints on the core overshooting. We computed new stellar models in a wider range than Bazot et al. (2005A&A...440..615B), with various chemical compositions ([Fe/H] and Y), with or without overshooting at the edge of the core. We computed their adiabatic oscillation frequencies and compared them to the seismic observations. For each set of chemical parameters, we kept the model which represented the best fit to the echelle diagram. Then, by comparing the effective temperatures, gravities and luminosities of these models with the spectroscopic error boxes, we were able to derive precise parameters for this star. First we find that all the models which correctly fit the echelle diagram have the same mass and radius, with an uncertainty of the order of one percent. Second, the final comparison with spectroscopic observations leads to the conclusion that besides its high metallicity, µ Arae has a high helium abundance of the order of Y=0.3. Knowing this allows finding precise values for all the other parameters, mass, radius and age.
