Abstract

Analysis of photometry of bright hot stars from BRITE

Monika Rybicka (Nicolaus Copernicus Center)

Superiant stars are known to show variations in spectroscopy and photometry. It can be causes by stellar wind, subsurface convection, granulation or rotational modulation. Some models predict that the reason can be also pulsations. Data from BRITE constellation gives opportunity to improve it. During talk I will present results of analysis of photometry of bright hot stars from BRITE.

Mode of presentation need to be confirmed by the SOC
