To optimise the science results of the asteroseismic part of the CoRoT satellite mission a complementary simultaneous ground-based observational campaign is organised for selected CoRoT targets. The observations include both high-resolution spectroscopic and multicolour photometric data. We present the preliminary results of the analysis of the ground-based observations of three targets. A line-profile analysis of 216 high-resolution FEROS spectra of the ? Sct star HD 50844 reveals more than… Expand

The CoRoT B-type binary HD 50230: a prototypical hybrid pulsator with g-mode period and p-mode frequency spacings⋆
Context. B-type stars are promising targets for asteroseismic modelling, since their frequency spectrum is relatively simple. Aims. We deduce and summarise observational constraints for the hybridExpand
Study of HD 169392A observed by CoRoT and HARPS
Context. The results obtained by asteroseismology with data from space missions such as CoRoT and Kepler are providing new insights into stellar evolution. After five years of observations, CoRoT isExpand
CoRoT photometry and high-resolution spectroscopy of the interacting eclipsing binary AU Monocerotis
Analyses of very accurate CoRoT space photometry, past Johnson V photoelectric photometry and high-resolution echelle spectra led to the determination of improved and consistent fundamental stellarExpand
Evidence for nonlinear resonant mode coupling in the β Cephei star HD 180642 (V1449 Aquilae) from CoRoT photometry
Context. We present the CoRoT light curve of the β Cep star HD 180642, assembled during the first long run of the space mission, as well as archival single-band photometry. Aims. Our goal is toExpand
Solar-Like Oscillations in a Massive Star
Using data gathered by the Convection Rotation and Planetary Transits mission, the detection of solar-like oscillations in a massive star, V1449 Aql, which is a known large-amplitude (β Cephei) pulsator. Expand


Multi-site, multi-technique survey of gamma Doradus candidates - I. Spectroscopic results for 59 stars
We present the first results of a 2-year high-resolution spectroscopy campaign of 59 candidate γ Doradus stars which were mainly discovered from the HIPPARCOS astrometric mission. More than 60% ofExpand
Preparing the COROT space mission: Incidence and characterisation of pulsation in the lower instability strip
By pursuing the goal to find new variables in the COROT field-of-view we characterised a sample of stars located in the lower part of the instability strip. Our sample is composed of stars belongingExpand
Preparing the COROT Space Mission: New Variable Stars in the Galactic Anticenter Direction
The activities related to the preparation of the asteroseismic, photometric space mission COROT are described. Photoelectric observations, wide-field CCD photometry, uvbycalibra- tions and furtherExpand
Mode-identification of pulsating stars from line-profile variations with the moment method - an example - the beta cephei star delta ceti
We present a method of analysing line profile variations in (non-)radially pulsating stars in order to determine the degree l and the azimuthal number m of the mode(s). Balona (1986a,b; 1987; 1989)Expand
δ Ceti Is Not Monoperiodic: Seismic Modeling of a β Cephei Star from MOST* Space-based Photometry
The β Cephei star δ Ceti was considered one of the few monoperiodic variables in its class. Despite (or perhaps because of) its apparently simple oscillation spectrum, it has been challenging andExpand
Origin and evolution of the elements
This work on the origin and evolution of cosmic elements draws upon the work of experts at an international conference held in Paris in 1992. It deals with stellar and primordial nuceosynthesis,Expand

Follow-up photometry of six new beta Cephei stars discovered from the HIPPARCOS mission
We present ground-based follow-up photometry in the Geneva seven-colour photometric system of six new candidate β Cep stars. The variability of these objects was originally found from the HIPPARCOSExpand
