About 10 per cent of upper main-sequence stars are characterized by the presence of chemical peculiarities, often found together with a structured magnetic field. The atmospheres of most of those chemically peculiar stars present surface spots, leading to photometric variability caused by rotational modulation. The study of the light curves of those stars therefore permits a precise measurement of their rotational period, which is important to study stellar evolution and to plan further…
