This report from Commission 30 covers the salient areas in which major
progress has been made in the triennium covered by the present volume.
The principal scientific areas are: The Milky Way, star clusters,
spectroscopic binaries, extrasolar planets, pulsating stars and stellar
oscillations. Following these, an account is given of the progress in
techniques and methodology for radial velocity determinations. Finally,
a summary is given of the progress made by the working groups of the
Commission, followed by a list of key papers in the triennium. A more
extensive report also covering extragalactic work, which due to
unforeseen circumstances could not be included here, can be found at the
web page of Commission 30 (http://www.iau.org/IAU/Organization/divcom/).
