Observations of solar-like oscillation frequencies allow us to constrain the theory of structure and evolution of stars with an outer convective zone. Recent improvements in radial velocity measurements have led to p-mode detection on Procyon (Martic et al., 1999) and β Hydri (Bedding et al., 2001; Carrier et al., 2001a). Very recently, characterization of the p-modes ofαCen A has been made with the spectrograph CORALIE mounted on the 1.2-m Swiss telescope at the ESO La Silla Observatory
