Synergies between Asteroseismology and Exoplanetary Science.

Daniel Huber

Over the past decade asteroseismology has become a powerful method to systematically characterize host stars and dynamical architectures of exoplanet systems. In this contribution I review current key synergies between asteroseismology and exoplanetary science such as the precise determination of planet radii and ages, the measurement of orbital eccentricities, stellar obliquities and their impact on hot Jupiter formation theories, and the importance of asteroseismology on spectroscopic analyses of exoplanet hosts. I also give an outlook on future synergies such as the characterization of sub-Neptune-size planets orbiting solar-type stars, the study of planet populations orbiting evolved stars, and the determination of ages of intermediate-mass stars hosting directly imaged planets.
