Eta Car, with its historical outbursts, visible ejecta and massive, variable winds, continues to challenge both observers and modelers. In just the past five years over 100 papers have been published on this fascinating object. We now know it to be a massive binary system with a 5.54-year period. In January 2009, η Car underwent one of its periodic low-states, associated with periastron passage of the two massive stars. This event was monitored by an intensive multi-wavelength campaign ranging… 

High-resolution imaging of Galactic massive stars with AstraLux. I. 138 fields with δ > - 25°

Context. Massive stars have high-multiplicity fractions, and many of them have still undetected components, thus hampering the study of their properties. Aims. I study a sample of massive stars with

3-D Radiative Transfer Modeling of Structured Winds in Massive Hot Stars with Wind3D

We develop 3-D models of the structured winds of massive hot stars with the Wind3D radiative transfer (RT) code. We investigate the physical properties of large-scale structures observed in the wind
