Hartkopf, W.I. (ed.), Binary Stars as Critical Tools & Tests in Contemporary Astrophysics, Proceedings of IAU Symposium #240, held 22-25 August, 2006 in Prague, Czech Republic
In this talk, we overview the current status of asteroseismology of close binary stars. We present an overview of the occurrence of pulsating stars in close binaries and we point out why the binarity is an asset, but also a complication, in this research topic. Subsequently, we discuss some case studies of close binaries containing a pulsating component. We provide the key ingredients for their successful binary and seismic interpretation and point out the current shortcomings. We end with an overview of future prospects.
