CSI 2264: Simultaneous optical and infrared light curves of young disk-bearing stars in NGC 2264 with CoRoT and Spitzer-- evidence for multiple origins of variability
We present the Coordinated Synoptic Investigation of NGC 2264, a continuous 30 day multi-wavelength photometric monitoring campaign on more than 1000 young cluster members using 16 telescopes. TheExpand

CoRoT Measures Solar-Like Oscillations and Granulation in Stars Hotter Than the Sun
Oscillations of the Sun have been used to understand its interior structure. The extension of similar studies to more distant stars has raised many difficulties despite the strong efforts of theExpand

GRAVITY-MODE PERIOD SPACINGS AS A SEISMIC DIAGNOSTIC FOR A SAMPLE OF γ DORADUS STARS FROM KEPLER SPACE PHOTOMETRY AND HIGH-RESOLUTION GROUND-BASED SPECTROSCOPY*
Gamma Doradus stars (hereafter ? Dor stars) are gravity-mode pulsators of spectral type A or F. Such modes probe the deep stellar interior, offering a detailed fingerprint of their structure.Expand

Pulsation of the K 2.5 giant star GSC 09137-03505?
In July, 1999, the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) pointed for more than 8 days continuously at the globular clus- ter 47 Tucanae. Two guide stars were used during this campaign by the Fine GuidanceExpand

The accuracy of stellar atmospheric parameter determinations: a case study with HD 32115 and HD 37594★
We present detailed parameter determinations of two chemically normal late A-type stars, HD 32115 and HD 37594, to uncover the reasons behind large discrepancies between two previous analyses ofExpand
