  journal={Astronomy and Astrophysics},
Context. We present modelling of the β Cep star HD 180642 based on its observational properties deduced from CoRoT and ground-based photometry as well as from time-resolved spectroscopy. Aims. We investigate whether present-day state-of-the-art models are able to explain the full seismic behaviour of this star, which has extended observational constraints for this type of pulsator. Methods. We constructed a dedicated database of stellar models and their oscillation modes tuned to fit the…

New Beta Cephei Stars from the KELT Project

We present the results of a search for Galactic β Cephei stars, which are massive pulsating stars with both pressure modes and mixed modes. Thus, these stars can serve as benchmarks for seismological

Magnetic field studies of massive main sequence stars

We report on the status of our spectropolarimetric observations of massive stars. During the last years, we have discovered magnetic fields in many objects of the upper main sequence, including Be

New β Cep pulsators discovered with K2 space photometry

We present the discovery of three new β Cep pulsators, three new pulsators with frequency groupings, and frequency patterns in a B3Ib star, all of which show pulsations with frequencies as high as

Pulsation among TESS A and B stars and the Maia variables

Classification of over 50 000 TESS stars in sectors 1–18 has resulted in the detection of 766 pulsating main-sequence B stars as well as over 5000 δ Scuti, 2300 γ Doradus, and 114 roAp candidates.

Massive stars are important metal factories in the Universe. They have short and energetic lives, and many of them inevitably explode as a supernova and become a neutron star or black hole. In turn,

Asteroseismology of stars on the upper main sequence

I review the properties of pulsators located on the upper main sequence in the HR diagram and discuss asteroseismic inferences on the internal structure of stars of spectral type A and B. Special

Photometric detection of internal gravity waves in upper main-sequence stars

Context. Massive stars are predicted to excite internal gravity waves (IGWs) by turbulent core convection and from turbulent pressure fluctuations in their near-surface layers. These IGWs are



Evidence for nonlinear resonant mode coupling in the β Cephei star HD 180642 (V1449 Aquilae) from CoRoT photometry

Context. We present the CoRoT light curve of the β Cep star HD 180642, assembled during the first long run of the space mission, as well as archival single-band photometry. Aims. Our goal is to

The pulsations of the B5IVe star HD 181231 observed with CoRoT and ground-based spectroscopy

Context. HD 181231 is a B5IVe star, which has been observed with the CoRoT satellite during ∼5 consecutive months and simultaneously from the ground in spectroscopy and spectropolarimetry. Aims. By

An asteroseismic study of the O9V star HD 46202 from CoRoT space-based photometry

The O9V star HD46202, which is a member of the young open cluster NGC 2244, was observed by the CoRoT satellite in October/November 2008 during a short run of 34 days. From the very high-precision

Asteroseismology of the β Cephei star ν Eridani: massive exploration of standard and non-standard stellar models to fit the oscillation data

We present the results of a detailed seismic modelling of the Cephei star Eridani with the Li‘ ege evolution and pulsation codes. We selected four clearly detected, well-identified and independent

Asteroseismology of the β Cephei star ν Eridani: interpretation and applications of the oscillation spectrum

The oscillation spectrum of v Eri is the richest known for any variable of the β Cephei type. We interpret the spectrum in terms of normal mode excitation and construct seismic models of the star.

An asteroseismic study of the β Cephei star 12 Lacertae: multisite spectroscopic observations, mode identification and seismic modelling

We present the results of a spectroscopic multisite campaign for the β Cephei star 12 (DD) Lacertae. Our study is based on more than thousand high-resolution high S/N spectra gathered with eight

An asteroseismic study of the β Cephei star θ Ophiuchi: constraints on global stellar parameters and core overshooting

We present a seismic study of the β Cephei star θ Ophiuchi. Our analysis is based on the observation of one radial mode, one rotationally split � = 1 triplet and three components of a rotationally

The B0.5IVe CoRoT target HD 49330 - I. Photometric analysis from CoRoT data

Context. Be stars undergo outbursts producing a circumstellar disk from the ejected material. The beating of non-radial pulsations has been put forward as a possible mechanism of ejection. Aims. We

Pulsations in the late-type Be star HD 50 209 detected by CoRoT

Context. The presence of pulsations in late-type Be stars is still a matter of controversy. It constitutes an important issue to establish the relationship between non-radial pulsations and the

We perform a detailed seismic study of the β Cep star HD 129929. Our analysis is based on the recent derivation of six pulsation frequencies. These frequencies are unambiguously identified from the
