Modeling Ultraviolet Wind Line Variability in Massive Hot Stars


We model the detailed time-evolution of Discrete Absorption Components (DACs) observed in P Cygni profiles of the Si iv λ1400 resonance doublet lines of the fast-rotating supergiant HD 64760 (B0.5 Ib). We adopt the common assumption that the DACs are caused by Co-rotating Interaction Regions (CIRs) in the stellar wind. We perform 3D radiative transfer… (More)
