Physical processes leading to surface inhomogeneities: the case of rotation

27 Aug 2015 Rieutord Michel

In this lecture I discuss the bulk surface heterogeneity of rotating stars, namely gravity darkening. I especially detail the derivation of the omega-model of Espinosa Lara & Rieutord (2011), which gives the gravity darkening in early-type stars... (read more)
