Context. The Geneva Stellar Evolution Group has recently presented an extended database of rotating stellar models at three different metallicities for nine different initial rotation parameters and ten different masses corresponding to spectral types from early-F to late-O. With these grids we have contributed to the understanding of the evolution of single rotating stars, and we intend to use them to produce synthetic stellar populations that fully account for the effects of stellar rotation… 
Massive star formation by accretion II. Rotation: how to circumvent the angular momentum barrier?
Rotation plays a key role in the star-formation process, from pre-stellar cores to pre-main-sequence (PMS) objects. Understanding the formation of massive stars requires taking into account the
Stellar models and isochrones from low-mass to massive stars including pre-main sequence phase with accretion
Grids of stellar models are useful tools to derive the properties of stellar clusters, in particular young clusters hosting massive stars, and to provide information on the star formation process in
Critical angular velocity and anisotropic mass loss of rotating stars with radiation-driven winds
Context. The understanding of the evolution of early-type stars is tightly related to that of the effects of rapid rotation. For massive stars, rapid rotation combines with their strong
Increasing spin of a B-Star during the common envelope stage
Context. In its evolution, the MWC 656 binary system, consisting of a Be star and a black hole, has gone through the common envelope stage. The O and B stars of the early spectral subclasses can be
Convective core sizes in rotating massive stars
Spectroscopic studies of Galactic O and B stars show that many stars with masses above 8 M$_{\odot}$ are observed in the HR diagram just beyond the Main-Sequence (MS) band predicted by stellar models
An interferometric view of hot star disks
Optical long baseline interferometry was recently established as a technique capable of resolving stars and their circumstellar environments at the milliarcsecond (mas) resolution level. This
The spin-up of a star gaining mass in a close binary
The article is focused on the transport of angular momentum in the depths of the accreting component of a binary system. Angular momentum occurs along with accreted matter. In response to accretion,
Spectral and spatial imaging of the Be+sdO binary phi Persei
The rapidly rotating Be star phi Persei was spun up by mass and angular momentum transfer from a now stripped-down, hot subdwarf companion. Here we present the first high angular resolution images of


Presupernova Evolution of Rotating Massive Stars. I. Numerical Method and Evolution of the Internal Stellar Structure
The evolution of rotating stars with zero-age main-sequence (ZAMS) masses in the range 8-25 M☉ is followed through all stages of stable evolution. The initial angular momentum is chosen such that the
Populations of rotating stars - II. Rapid rotators and their link to Be-type stars
Context. Even though it is broadly accepted that single Be stars are rapidly rotating stars surrounded by a flat rotating circumstellar disk, there is still a debate about how fast these stars rotate
Populations of rotating stars III. SYCLIST, the new Geneva Population Synthesis code
(abridged) We present a new tool for building synthetic colour-magnitude diagrams of coeval stellar populations. We study, from a theoretical point of view, the impact of axial rotation of stars on
Models of rotating massive stars: impacts of various prescriptions
The rotation of stars has many interesting and important consequences for the photometric and chemical evolution of galaxies. Many of the predictions of models of stellar rotation are now compared
Star formation with disc accretion and rotation - I. Stars between 2 and 22 M⊙ at solar metallicity
Context. The way angular momentum is built up in stars during their formation process may have an impact on their further evolution. Aims. In the framework of the cold disc accretion scenario, we
Gravity darkening in rotating stars
Context. Interpretation of interferometric observations of rapidly rotating stars requires a good model of their surface effective temperature. Until now, laws of the form Teff ∝ g βff have been
Grids of stellar models with rotation - I. Models from 0.8 to 120 M⊙ at solar metallicity (Z = 0.014)
Aims. Many topical astrophysical research areas, such as the properties of planet host stars, the nature of the progenitors of different types of supernovae and gamma ray bursts, and the evolution of
Evolution towards the critical limit and the origin of Be stars
Context. More and more evidence leads to considering classical Be stars as rotating close to the critical velocity. If so, then the question that arises is the origin of this high surface velocity.
Rotation of Early B-type Stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud: the role of Evolution and Metallicity
I present measurements of the projected rotational velocities of a sample of 100 early B-type main-sequence stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). This is the first extragalactic study of the
Evolution of rapidly rotating metal-poor massive stars towards gamma-ray bursts
Recent models of rotating massive stars including magnetic fields prove it difficult for the cores of single stars to retain enough angular momentum to produce a collapsar and gamma-ray burst. At low
