Pulsations in pre-main sequence stars have been discovered several times within the last years. But nearly all of these pulsators are of delta Scuti-type. gamma Doradus-type pulsation in young stars has been predicted by theory, but lack observational evidence. We present the investigation of variability caused by rotation and (gammaDoradus-type) pulsation in two pre-main sequence members of the young open cluster NGC2264 using high-precision time series photometry from the CoRoT satellite and… Expand
Regular frequency patterns in the young δ Scuti star HD 261711 observed by the CoRoT and MOST satellites
Context. The internal structure of pre-main-sequence (PMS) stars is poorly constrained at present. This could change significantly through high-quality asteroseismological observations of a sample ofExpand
The position of confirmed pre-main sequence pulsators in the H-R diagram and an overview of their properties
Abstract Pre-main sequence (PMS) stars can become vibrationally unstable during their evolution to the zero-age main sequence (ZAMS). As they gain their energy from gravitational contraction and haveExpand
A comprehensive study of young B stars in NGC 2264 . I. Space photometry and asteroseismology
Context. Space photometric time series of the most massive members of the young open cluster NGC 2264 allow us to study their different sources of variability down to the millimagnitude level andExpand

Abstract Asteroseismology has been proven to be a successful tool to unravel details of the internal structure for different types of stars in various stages of evolution well after birth. We can nowExpand
The first view of δ Scuti and γ Doradus stars with the TESS mission
We present the first asteroseismic results for δ Scuti and γ Doradus stars observed in Sectors 1 and 2 of the TESS mission. We utilize the 2-min cadence TESS data for a sample of 117 stars toExpand
The potential of space observations for pulsating pre-main sequence stars
The first asteroseismic studies of pre-main sequence (pre-MS) pulsators have been conducted based on data from the space telescopes MOST and CoRoT with typical time bases of less than 40 days. WithExpand
Pulsational properties of ten new slowly pulsating B stars
We collected a sample of ten hitherto unidentified SPB stars with the aim of describing their pulsational properties and identifying pulsational modes. Photometric time series data from variousExpand
Kepler observations of A–F pre-main-sequence stars in Upper Scorpius: discovery of six new δ Scuti and one γ Doradus stars
We present light curves and periodograms for 27 stars in the young Upper Scorpius association (age=$11 \pm 1$\,Myr) obtained with the Kepler spacecraft. This association is only the second stellarExpand
Two spotted and magnetic early B-type stars in the young open cluster NGC 2264 discovered by MOST and ESPaDOnS
Star clusters are known as superb tools for understanding stellar evolution. In a quest for understanding the physical o rigin of magnetism and chemical peculiarity in about 7% of the massiveExpand
A new asteroseismic diagnostic for internal rotation in γ Doradus stars
With four years of nearly-continuous photometry from Kepler, we are finally in a good position to apply asteroseismology to $\gamma$ Doradus stars. In particular several analyses have demonstratedExpand


Spectrum synthesis for magnetic, chemically stratified stellar atmospheres
Modern investigations of magnetic chemically peculiar stars reveal a variety of complex processes in their atmospheres. Realistic spectrum synthesis modelling of these objects has to take intoExpand
