Asteroseismology provides us with the possibility of determining the angle, i, between the direction of the rotation axis of a pulsating Sun-like star and the line of sight. A knowledge of i is important not just for obtaining improved stellar parameters, but also in order to determine the true masses of extrasolar planets detected from the radial velocity shifts of their central stars. By means of Monte Carlo simulations, we estimate the precision of the measurement of i and other stellardoi:10.1086/374715 fatcat:3kgctcu76ba57lehvw36wkygi4
