In science:

Indeed, the method presented here and the approach from Bedding & Kjeldsen (2010) both amount to scaling a model (or a comparison star) so that the large frequency separation agrees with that of the observed star, then adjusting the identification so that the offset between the two sets of frequencies is minimised.
Estimating stellar mean density through seismic inversions
In particular, this agrees with the identification favoured by Kallinger et al. (2010) and with the results from Bedding & Kjeldsen (2010) who compared HD 49933 to other observed stars in which the identification is known.
Estimating stellar mean density through seismic inversions
Interestingly, Bedding et al. (2010) recently reported on an asteroseismic investigation of Procyon, also of spectral type F5.
Estimating stellar mean density through seismic inversions
This approach to mode identification, although different from the methods presented in Bedding & Kjeldsen (2010) and White et al. (2011), is also based on the same principles.
