Abstract
In the near future frequencies of solar-like oscillation will be observed by the several planned space missions. In order to assess the information that will be available from such observations, we consider theoretical predictions of the frequency spectrum of oscillations of the star $\eta$ Bootis, which shows solar-type pulsations. We present results obtained by comparing "classical" evolution models with models computed by taking into account overshooting from the convective core.


Key words: stars: individual: $\eta$ Bootis -- stars: evolution -- stars: oscillations
