Public release of 57 solar-type stars

Previously embargoed results for 57 solar-type stars have now been released on the AMP website. The release includes all of the results published in Creevey et al. 2017 using the asteroseismic constraints derived by Lund et al. 2017 from the full-length Kepler data sets. These results utilize version 1.3 of the AMP methodology, which relies entirely on the frequency separation ratios and spectroscopic constraints to model each star. This approach minimizes the largest potential source of bias on the inferred stellar properties, due to "surface effects" on the individual frequencies.

This research was supported in part by the Non-profit Adopt a Star program administered by White Dwarf Research Corporation. A history of this crowdfunding effort was published in Metcalfe (2015).
