Visibilities and bolometric corrections for stellar oscillation modes observed by Kepler. Ballot J., Barban C., van't Veer-Menneret C. <Astron. Astrophys. 531, A124 (2011)> =2011A&A...531A.124B
ADC_Keywords: Models, atmosphere Keywords: asteroseismology - stars: atmospheres - stars: solar-type Abstract: Kepler produces a large amount of data used for asteroseismological analyses, particularly of solar-like stars and red giants. The mode amplitudes observed in the Kepler spectral band have to be converted into bolometric amplitudes to be compared to models. We give a simple bolometric correction for the amplitudes of radial modes observed with Kepler, as well as the relative visibilities of non-radial modes. We numerically compute the bolometric correction cK-bol and mode visibilities, for different effective temperatures Teff within the range 4000-7500K, using a similar approach to a recent one from the literature. We derive a law for the correction to bolometric values: cK-bol=1+a1(Teff-To)+a2(Teff-To)2, with To=5934K, a1=1.349e-4K-1, and a2=-3.120e-9K-2 or, alternatively, as the power law cK-bol=(Teff/To)alpha with alpha=0.80. We give tabulated values for the mode visibilities based on limb-darkening, computed from ATLAS9 model atmospheres for Teff in [4000,7500]K, logg in [2.5,4.5], and [M/H] in [-1.0,+1.0]. We show that using LD profiles already integrated over the spectral band provides quick and good approximations for visibilities. We point out the limits of these classical visibility estimations. Description: These are computations of visibilities of non-radial modes for the Kepler mission. File Summary:

Note (1): The metallicity is log[metal/H]-log[(metal/H)_☉]. Note (2): Vl is the visibility of a mode of degree l, i.e. the apparent amplitude of this mode compared to a radial mode (l=0) that would have the same intrinsic amplitude at the surface of the star. By definition, V0=1. Here the values of Vl2 are tabulated, they correspond to mode visibilities in oscillation power spectra. The total visibility Vt2 is defined as the sum of Vl2 l=0 to infinity.
