Détection et modélisation de binaires sismiques avec Kepler

Abstract : The Kepler space telescope detected solar-like oscillations in several hundreds of stars, providing a way to determine their physical properties using asteroseismology. However, the stellar evolutionary models and scaling relations employed to determine parameters such as the mass, the radius and the age require a proper calibration. In this context, the use of seismic binaries showing solar-like oscillations in both stars is especially suitable. During this thesis, we have worked towards the detection of such seismic binaries from the Kepler database and developed the necessary tools to study them. Although the discovery of a new seismic binary was very unlikely, we were able to report for the first time the detection of solar-like oscillations in the two brightest stars of a triple stellar system, namely HD 188753. Using stellar modelling, we found compatible ages for the two stars derived from asteroseismology, as expected from their common origin. In addition, we performed the first orbital analysis of this hierarchical system in order to derive a direct estimate of masses and parallax. Finally, the example of HD 188753 shows our capability to detect and model each of the stars of a binary or multiple system and to perform the orbital analysis of this one. The various tools developed during this thesis will be extensively used in the context of the future missions TESS and PLATO.
