Stars are changing entities in a constant evolution during their lives. At non-secular time scales (from seconds to years) the effect of dynamical processes such as convection, rotation, and magnetic fields can modify the stellar oscillations. Convection excites acoustic modes in solar-like stars, while rotation and magnetic fields can perturb the oscillation frequencies lifting the degeneracy in the azimuthal component m of the eigenfrequencies. Moreover, the interaction between rotation…

Magnetic activity of F stars observed by Kepler

Context. The study of stellar activity is important because it can provide new constraints for dynamo models when combined with surface rotation rates and the depth of the convection zone. We know

STELLAR EVOLUTION WITH ROTATION. III. MERIDIONAL CIRCULATION WITH MU -GRADIENTS AND NON-STATIONARITY

Models of stellar evolution with rotation are very much needed in order to interpret recent stellar properties, in particular for massive stars. For that we proceed to a detailed investigation of

SEISMIC AND DYNAMICAL SOLAR MODELS. I. THE IMPACT OF THE SOLAR ROTATION HISTORY ON NEUTRINOS AND SEISMIC INDICATORS

Solar activity and helioseismology show the limitation of the standard solar model and call for the inclusion of dynamical processes in both convective and radiative zones. In this paper, we

SEISMIC EVIDENCE FOR A RAPIDLY ROTATING CORE IN A LOWER-GIANT-BRANCH STAR OBSERVED WITH KEPLER

Rotation is expected to have an important influence on the structure and the evolution of stars. However, the mechanisms of angular momentum transport in stars remain theoretically uncertain and very

Fast core rotation in red-giant stars as revealed by gravity-dominated mixed modes

An increasing rotation rate from the surface of the star to the stellar core in the interiors of red giants is reported using the rotational frequency splitting of recently detected ‘mixed modes’, which confirms the theoretical prediction of a steep gradient in the rotation profile towards the deep stellar interior.

Rotation- and temperature-dependence of stellar latitudinal differential rotation

More than 600 high resolution spectra of stars with spectral type F and later were obtained in order to search for signatures of differential rotation in line profiles. In 147 stars the rotation law

Seismic constraints on rotation of Sun-like star and mass of exoplanet

Inferences are drawn on the internal rotation of a distant Sun-like star by studying its global modes of oscillation, and asteroseismology constrains the mass of exoplanet HD 52265b, which implies that it is a planet, not a brown dwarf.

On the Rotational Evolution of Solar- and Late-Type Stars, Its Magnetic Origins, and the Possibility of Stellar Gyrochronology

We propose a simple interpretation of the rotation period data for solar- and late-type stars. The open cluster and Mount Wilson star observations suggest that rotating stars lie primarily on two
