Magnetic Properties of Rapidly Oscillating Ap Stars

  • G. Mathys (a1) and S. Hubrig (a2)

Extract

Rapidly oscillating Ap stars generally pulsate in multiple modes, characterized by different frequencies. The amplitudes of these modes may furthermore be modulated with the rotation frequency of the star. For the two roAp stars whose magnetic fields have been sufficiently studied, the maximum pulsation amplitude coincides in phase with one of the extrema of the mean longitudinal magnetic field. Two interpretations of this property have been proposed: the oblique pulsator model, according to which the pulsation modes are aligned with the magnetic axis of the star, and the spotted pulsator model, which assumes that the pulsation modes are symmetric about the rotation axis of the star, and that pulsation amplitude modulation is due to the inhomogeneity of the stellar surface (which, itself, is related to the magnetic field geometry). At present, no definite choice between these two models can be made, though the oblique pulsator model is often preferred.
