Ages of Stars: Methods and Uncertainties
Estimating ages for stars is difficult at best, but Galactic problems have their own requirements that go beyond those for other areas of astrophysics. As in other areas, asteroseismology is helping, and in this review I discuss some of the general problems encountered and some specific to large-scale studies of the Milky Way.
