ASTEROSEISMOLOGY: What, how and what for?

What is Asteroseismology? What is it used for? How do we (asteroseismology scientists) work? These are the questions I want to answer in this talk. I will make a short introduction to variable stars and say some words about stellar interiors and the method generally used for the study of pulsations: the perturbative method.
Finally, I will explain an example of how we work. I will make a travel from the moment of taking the data to the final step of testing the theory of stellar interiors.

(I will speak in spanish but all the slides will be shown in english).
