New measurements of photospheric magnetic fields in late-type stars and emerging trends
The magnetic fields of late-type stars are measured using the method of Saar et al. (1986). The method includes radiative transfer effects and compensation for line blending; the photosphericExpand
Turbulence and Rotation in Solar-Type Stars
Microturbulence, macroturbulence, thermal motion, and rotation contribute to the broadening of line profiles in stellar spectra. Reliable data on the velocity distribution of turbulent motions inExpand
Spectroscopy across Stellar Surfaces
Stars as we observe them are point source objects and their measured spectra are integrated over the stellar disk. Since the beginning of stellar spectroscopy, stellar parameters are calculated fromExpand
AN OPTICAL SPECTROSCOPIC STUDY OF T TAURI STARS. I. PHOTOSPHERIC PROPERTIES
Estimates of the mass and age of young stars from their location in the H-R diagram are limited by not only the typical observational uncertainties that apply to field stars, but also by largeExpand
Stellar granulation and interferometry
Stars are not smooth. Their photosphere is covered by a granulation pattern associated with the heat transport by convection. The convection-related surface structures have different size, depth, andExpand
Solar and Stellar Photospheric Abundances
The determination of photospheric abundances in late-type stars from spectroscopic observations is a well-established field, built on solid theoretical foundations. Improving those foundations toExpand

Convection and turbulence in stellar atmospheres have a significant effect on the emergent flux from A-type stars. The recent theoretical advancements in convection modelling have proven to be aExpand
The spectral characteristics of transiting extrasolar planet
The characteristics of the stellar spectral and flux variations intervened by its extrasolar planet provide dynamic and atmospheric information for both bodies. In this report, a transit modellingExpand
Stellar Atmospheres: Basic Processes and Equations
The content of this chapter is a very quick summary of key concepts that concern the interaction between photons created in the stellar interior and plasma, which is the basis of the physicalExpand
