Asteroseismology constitutes a brach of stellar physics in which the internal structure of the stars is inferred from the properties of their oscillations detected at the surface. Thanks to the development of the observational technique, particularly after the launch of the CoRoT and Kepler spacecrafts, the targets of asteroseismology now cover almost all the area on the HR diagram, including not only the main-sequence stars, but also the evolved stars (subgiants, red giants and white dwarfs). In this presentation, an introduction to asteroseismology is attempted with some recent highlights and future prospects.
