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… Expand
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 provideExpand
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 theExpand
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. CompleteExpand
KIC 10526294: a slowly rotating B star with rotationally split, quasi-equally spaced gravity modes
Massive stars are important for the chemical enrichment of the universe. Since internal mixing processes influence their lives, it is very important to place constraints on the corresponding physicalExpand
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 atExpand
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. TheExpand
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 theExpand
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 aExpand
Combined asteroseismology, spectroscopy, and astrometry of the CoRoT B2V target HD 170580
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 transport.Expand
