ESTER two-dimensional models solve the steady state structure of fast rotating early-type stars including the large scale flows associated with the baroclinicity of the radiative zones. Models are compared successfully to the fundamental parameters of the two main components of the triple system $\delta$ Velorum that have been derived from interferometric and orbit measurements. Testing the models on the Be star Achernar ($\alpha$ Eri), we cannot reproduce the data and conclude that this star…

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
