Abstract: Coronal seismology exploits the properties of magnetohydrodynamics in the corona of the Sun to diagnose the local plasma. Therefore, seismology complements direct diagnostic techniques, which suffer from line-of-sight integration or may not give access to all physical quantities. In particular, the seismological exploitation of fast magnetoacoustic oscillations in coronal loops provides information about the global magnetic and density structuring of those loops acting as wave guides. From the oscillation period and damping time it is shown how to obtain information about the local coronal magnetic field as well as the longitudinal and transverse structuring. Furthermore, such studies motivate the development of coronal wave theories, which are also relevant to the coronal heating problem.
