Massive Star Evolution

  • N. Langer (a1) and A. Heger (a2)

Abstract

The evolution of massive stars is far from being fully understood, as we outline by pointing to a number of open problems related to massive stars in the Magellanic Clouds. We argue that rotation may be a key ingredient in the physics of massive stars. We report on recent results obtained including rotation, and their relevance to these remaining questions.
