The detection of radial and non-radial solar-like oscillations in millions of G-K giants with CoRoT and Kepler is paving the line for exact reviews of stellar populations within the Galaxy. The to be had normal seismic constraints enable mostly model-independent decision of stellar radii and lots more and plenty, and will be used to figure out the placement and age of hundreds of thousands of stars in several areas of the Milky approach, and of giants belonging to open clusters. one of these shut connection among stellar evolution, Galactic evolution, and asteroseismology opens a brand new very promising gate in our realizing of stars and galaxies.

This booklet represents a traditional development from the gathering of assessment papers awarded within the publication 'Red Giants as Probes of the constitution and Evolution of the Milky Way', which seemed within the Astrophysics and area technology lawsuits sequence in 2012. This sequel quantity comprises overview papers on spectroscopy, seismology of purple giants, open questions in Galactic astrophysics, and discusses first effects accomplished via combining photometric/spectroscopic and seismic constraints on populations of stars saw via CoRoT and Kepler. The publication additionally stories on discussions among professional researchers in Galactic evolution, experts in stellar constitution and asteroseismology, and key representatives of in depth ground-based spectroscopic surveys akin to APOGEE and the ESO-GAIA Spectroscopic Survey, which might function a roadmap for destiny endeavours during this box of research.
