Context. OB stars are important building blocks of the Universe, but we have only a limited sample of them well understood enough from an asteroseismological point of view to provide feedback on the current evolutionary models. Our study adds one special case to this sample, with more observational constraints than for most of these stars. Aims. Our goal is to analyse and interpret the pulsational behaviour of the B3 IV star HD 43317 using the CoRoT light curve along with the ground-based… 
Two new SB2 binaries with main sequence B-type pulsators in the Kepler field
Context: OB stars are important in the chemistry and evolution of the Universe, but the sample of targets well understood from an asteroseismological point of view is still too limited to provide
Stochastic gravito-inertial modes discovered by CoRoT in the hot Be star HD 51452
Context. Be stars are rapidly rotating stars with a circumstellar decretion disk. They usually undergo pressure and/or gravity pulsation modes excited by the κ-mechanism, i.e. an effect of the
HD 41641: A classical δ Sct-type pulsator with chemical signatures of an Ap star
Context. Among the known groups of pulsating stars, δ Sct stars are one of the least understood. Theoretical models do not predict the oscillation frequencies that observations reveal. Complete
Combined asteroseismology, spectroscopy, and astrometry of the CoRoT B2V target HD 170580
Context. Space asteroseismology reveals that stellar structure and evolution models of intermediate- and high-mass stars are in need of improvement in terms of angular momentum and chemical element
High-precision CoRoT space photometry and fundamental parameter determination of the B2.5V star HD 48977
We present the CoRoT light curve of the bright B2.5V star HD 48977 observed during a short run of the mission in 2008, as well as a high-resolution spectrum gathered with the HERMES spectrograph at
Signatures of internal rotation discovered in the Kepler data of five slowly pulsating B stars
Context. Massive stars are important building blocks of the Universe, and their stellar structure and evolution models are fundamental cornerstones of various fields in modern astrophysics. The
Low-amplitude rotational modulation rather than pulsations in the CoRoT B-type supergiant HD 46769
Aims. We aim to detect and interpret photometric and spectroscopic variability of the bright CoRoT B-type supergiant target HD 46769 (V = 5:79). We also attempt to detect a magnetic field in the
Discovery of a magnetic field in the CoRoT hybrid B-type pulsator HD 43317
Context. A promising way of testing the impact of a magnetic field on internal mixing (core overshooting, internal rotation) in mainsequence B-type stars is to perform asteroseismic studies of a
Probing the temperature gradient in the core boundary layer of stars with gravito-inertial modes
Aims. We investigated the thermal and chemical structure in the near-core region of stars with a convective core by means of gravito-inertial modes. We determined the probing power of different
High-precision Asteroseismology in a Slowly Pulsating B Star: HD 50230
The slowly pulsating B star HD 50230, which is in fact a hybrid B-type pulsator, has been observed by CoRoT for at least 137 days. Nearly equidistant period spacing patterns are found among eight


CoRoT high-precision photometry of the B0.5 IV star HD 51756
Context. OB stars are important constituents for the ecology of the Universe, and there are only a few studies on their pulsational properties detailed enough to provide important feedback on current
An asteroseismic study of the O9V star HD 46202 from CoRoT space-based photometry
The O9V star HD46202, which is a member of the young open cluster NGC 2244, was observed by the CoRoT satellite in October/November 2008 during a short run of 34 days. From the very high-precision
CoRoT’s view on variable B8/9 stars: spots versus pulsations - Evidence for differential rotation in HD 174648
Context. There exist few variability studies of stars in the region in the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram between the A and B-star pulsational instability strips. With the aid of the high precision
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 hybrid
Detection of frequency spacings in the young O-type binary HD 46149 from CoRoT photometry
Aims. Using the CoRoT space based photometry of the O-type binary HD 46149, stellar atmospheric effects related to rotation can be separated from pulsations, because they leave distinct signatures in
