Abstract:AbstractThe Kepler and CoRoT satellites have determined precise asteroseismic radii for large samples of red giant stars. Combining these data with data from spectroscopic and photometric surveys has led to precise distance determinations using comprehensive Bayesian methods. Here we determine angular diameters and thus distances using the interferometrically calibrated near-IR surface-brightness method finding good agreement with previous results. The method can easily be reversed when accurate Gaia parallaxe…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
