These are the proceedings of the 61st Fujihara Seminar "Progress in Solar / Stellar Physics with Helio- and Asteroseismology." The proceedings consist of 72 contributions, including the papers of those who registered but could not attend the meeting due to the enormous earthquake that occurred in Japan just before the conference.

In 1989, an international conference "Progress of Seismology of the Sun and Stars" was held as the "Oji Seminar" at Hakone in Japan. Since then, helioseismology has achieved many outstanding successes with great impact on various aspects of astrophysics. Asteroseismology, a seismological approach to stars in general, is now a new frontier of astrophysics and is expected to develop rapidly following the success of helioseismology and the nearly continuous monitoring of variable stars from space.

March 2011 was deemed a good time to organize another similar international conference on helio- and asteroseismology at Hakone as the 61st Fujihara Seminar. The prime purpose of this conference was to bring together active researchers in helio- and asteroseismology and related fields to share their latest results, to discuss future approaches, and to exchange ideas on the following important questions: How do helio- and asteroseismology help the investigation of physical processes in stars? What is the role of magnetic fields? How useful are helio- and asteroseismology at unraveling unsolved problems in solar and stellar physics? What new physics has been deduced from helio- and asteroseismology? What is expected in the future?
These proceedings present an overview of recent progress in the fields of of helio- and asteroseismology. This book is of interest not only for specialists working in the fields of helio- and asteroseismology but also for researchers in solar and stellar astrophysics in general.
