Abstract

We present two independent methods for studying the global stellar parameter space (mass M, age, chemical composition X0, Z0) of HD 49933 with seismic data. Using a local minimization and an MCMC algorithm, we obtain consistent results for the determination of the stellar properties: M = 1.1-1.2 M Age ∼ 3.0 Gyr, Z0 ∼ 0.008. A description of the error ellipses can be defined using Singular Value Decomposition techniques, and this is validated by comparing the errors with those from the MCMC method.
