Abstract

Rotation has a strong influence in the structure of stars. The centrifugal force caused by rotation produces a deformation of the star that also affects the profile of brightness at its surface, this is known as gravity darkening. In this chapter we will construct a simple model to predict the shape and surface brightness of a rotating star.
