spectral asteroseismology

In my small amount of research time today I worked on a title, abstract, and introduction for a possible paper with Ness on inferring asteroseismological parameters (nu-max and delta-nu) from stellar spectra, using a modification of The Cannon. The project started when a preliminary study suggested that we can get ages. That is, we can train with stars with "known" ages and then infer the ages of other stars. Since the ages ultimately come from asteroseismological parameters, it makes sense to see if we can infer them first. If we can, it might have a big impact on what we think influences stellar spectra.
