Extreme deformation of a stellar surface, such as that produced by rapid rotation, causes the surface temperature and gravity to vary significantly with latitude. Thus, the spectral energy distribution (SED) of a non-spherical star could differ significantly from the SED of a spherical star with the same average temperature and luminosity. Calculation of(More)
We present a method for calculating synthetic line profiles for rapidly rotating, non-spherical stars. This parallel code includes the effects of the Doppler shift produced by the surface rotation, and is capable of simultaneously calculating the observed line profile for several different degrees of inclination between the observer and the star’s(More)
