11 June 2014ESTER workshop, Toulouse Precision in stellar oscillations modeling Numerical analyst point of view: Increasing the number of mesh points: “With 5000 mesh points, oscillation computations are precise …” Not enough in evolved stars Increasing the precision of the numerical scheme: High order of precision of finite differences. But don’t forget numerical stability (Reese 2013, A&A 555, 12, GYRE: Townsend & Teitler 2013, MNRAS 435, 3406) Spectral approach with orthogonal polynomials (TOP, ESTER, …) But sharp variations in stellar interiors Multi-domain (convective boundaries, opacities, …), approach huge core-surface contrast This is not always enough … 3

11 June 2014ESTER workshop, Toulouse Lagrangian or Eulerian perturbations ? Lagrangian Eulerian if and only if hydrostatic equilibrium of the structure model In high density contrast stars, 10.000-50.000 points required Interpolating the structure models ? No: hydrostatic equilibrium too imprecise … Non-radial oscillations in high-density contrast stars (blue and red supergiants): - Eulerian pressure perturbation in the g-mode cavity - Models in hydrostatic equilibrium with enough mesh points (avoid interpolations) 6 Precision in stellar oscillations modeling: choosing the good variables

Lagrangian perturbation of state equation and opacities are simpler better to use them in the superficial non-adiabatic layers
