Context. The study of pulsation in pre-main-sequence intermediate mass stars represents an important tool for deriving information on the stellar parameters and structure, as well as for testing the validity of current theoretical models. The interest in this class of variable stars has significantly increased during the last decade and about 30 members are presently known in the literature. Aims. A new observational study of the Herbig Ae star VV Ser has been performed to detect and accurately… 

Searching for δ Scuti-type pulsation and characterising northern pre-main-sequence field stars

Context. Pre-main-sequence (PMS) stars are objects evolving from the birthline to the zero-age main sequence (ZAMS). Given a mass range near the ZAMS, the temperatures and luminosities of PMS and

Constraints on pre-main-sequence evolution from stellar pulsations

Abstract Pulsating pre-main-sequence (PMS) stars afford the earliest opportunity in the lifetime of a star to which the concepts of asteroseismology can be applied. PMS stars should be structurally

Parameters of Herbig Ae/Be and Vega-type stars ⋆

Context. This work presents the characterization of 27 young early-type stars, most of them in the age range 1‐10 Myr, and three ‐suspected‐ hot companions of post-T Tauri stars belonging to the

Comparing the Observational Instability Regions for Pulsating Pre-Main-Sequence and Classical δ Scuti Stars

A comparison of the hot and cool boundaries of the classical instability strip with observations has been an important test for stellar structure and evolution models of post- and main-sequence

Grids of stellar evolution models for asteroseismology (cesam + posc)

In this paper we present a grid of stellar evolution models, computed with an up-to-date physical description of the internal structure, using the Code d’Évolution Stellaire Adaptatif et Modulaire

Matching the frequency spectrum of pre‐main sequence stars by means of standard and rotating models

We applied the ATON evolutionary code to the computation of detailed grids of standard (non-rotating) and rotating pre-main sequence (PMS) models and computed their adiabatic oscillation spectra,

Planets of young stars: The TLS-Tautenburg radial velocity survey

The discovery and characterization of planets of young stars represents an important goal as it will allow to put much stronger observational constraints on the current theories of planet formation

Grids of stellar evolution models for asteroseismology

In this paper we present a grid of stellar evolution models, computed with an up-to-date physical description of the internal structure, using the Code d’Evolution Stellaire Adaptatif et Modulaire

Seismic evolution of low/intermediate mass PMS stars (Research Note)

This article presents a study of the evolution of the internal structure and seismic properties expected for low/intermediate mass Pre-Main Sequence (PMS) stars. Seismic and non-seismic properties of

Photometric activity of UX orionis stars and related objects in the near infrared and optical: CO Ori, RR Tau, UX Ori, and VV Ser

This paper continues a study of the photometric activity of UX Ori stars in the optical and near-infrared (JHKLM bands) initiated in 2000. For comparison, the list of program stars contains two



Detection of delta Scuti-like pulsation in H254, a pre-main sequence F-type star in IC 348

We present time series observations of intermediate mass PMS stars belonging to the young star cluster IC 348. The new data reveal that a young member of the cluster, H254, undergoes periodic light

Oscillations in the PMS δ scuti star V346 Ori

We report the discovery of periodicities in the light curve of the Pre-Main Sequence (PMS) Herbig Ae star V346 Ori. We interpret variations in the light curve of the star as the superposition of at
