The edge of a convective region inside a star gives rise to a characteristic periodic signal in the frequencies of its global p-modes (e.g. , ), such that the frequencies ω are then essentially a smooth function of the mode order n plus a periodic component . Here the amplitude is , with A 1 and A 2 being values that depend weakly on frequency ω: A 1 is always present in general, but A 2 will be non-zero only if there is overshoot; is essentially the acoustical depth τ (i.e. the sound travel time) of the edge of the convection zone measured from the surface of the star; and Φ0 is a constant related to the phase of the eigenfunctions. To facilitate the comparison between different stars, we consider the amplitude evaluated at a fiducial frequency by defining . For the Sun, we chose as the reference frequency . If we take this value and scale it for other stars (using just a standard homology scaling for frequencies), we find .
