The oscillation spectrum of ν Eri is the richest known for any variable of the β Cephei type. We interpret the spectrum in terms of normal mode excitation and construct seismic models of the star. The frequency data combined with data on mean colours sets the upper limit on the extent of overshooting from the convective core. We use data on rotational splitting of two dipole (l = 1) modes (g1 and p1) to infer properties of the internal rotation rate. Adopting a plausible hypothesis of nearly… CONTINUE READING
