Several Delta Sct stars were photometrically monitored with the satellite CoRoT and observed in high-resolution spectroscopy from ground. We present here the preliminary analysis of the abundance analysis of several potential CoRoT targets. Moreover, new insights are given about the problem of the huge number of detected frequencies by comparing Delta Sct stars with normal A-stars.

On the Origin of the Dense Frequency Spectra of Space Observed Intermediate Mass Pulsating Stars
Several hypotheses have been advanced to explain the wealthy spectra of space observed intermediate mass pulsating stars. Among which we can find the rotational splitting, stochastic excitation orExpand
A Pulsation Review of Delta Scuti and Related Stars
The \(\delta \) Sct stars are by far the most common type of pulsating stars at spectral type A. In this, the most extensive review of \(\delta \) Sct stars in the Kepler era, the following topicsExpand
A precise asteroseismic age and metallicity for HD 139614: a pre-main-sequence star with a protoplanetary disc in Upper Centaurus–Lupus
HD\,139614 is known to be a $\sim$14-Myr-old, possibly pre-main-sequence star in the Sco-Cen OB association in the Upper Centaurus-Lupus subgroup, with a slightly warped circumstellar disc containingExpand


Evidence for Granulation in Early A-Type Stars
Stars with spectral types earlier than about F0 on (or close) to the main sequence have long been believed to lack observable surface convection, although evolutionary models of A-type stars doExpand
HD 50844: a new look at δ Scuti stars from CoRoT space photometry
Context. Aims. This work presents the results obtained by CoRoT on HD 50844, the only δ Sct star observed in the CoRoT initial run (57.6 d). The aim of these CoRoT observations was to investigate andExpand
The Solar Chemical Composition
Abstract We present our current knowledge of the solar chemical composition based on the recent significant downward revision of the solar photospheric abundances of the most abundant metals. TheseExpand
A calibration of Geneva photometry for B to G stars in terms of Teff, log g and $[M/H]$
We have used recent Kurucz models and numerous standard stars to improve the calibration of the Geneva photometric system proposed a few years ago. A new photometric diagram for the classification ofExpand

Validation of the new Hipparcos reduction
Context. A new reduction of the astrometric data as produced by the Hipparcos mission has been published, claiming accuracies for nearly all stars brighter than magnitude Hp = 8 to be better, by upExpand
Effective temperature scale and bolometric corrections from 2MASS photometry
We present a method to determine effective temperatures, angular semi-diameters and bolometric corrections for population I and II FGK type stars based on V and 2MASS IR photometry. AccurateExpand
