Abstract

The TGEC code now includes computations of element diffusion including radiative accelerations on metals. This can create accumulation of heavy elements in specific stellar layers. This accumulation can in turn induce thermohaline convection. All these processes should be taken into account in the computations of stellar models. We discuss the consequences of these processes on stellar seismology.
