Rotation of B[e] Supergiants, Luminous Blue Variables and Wolf-Rayet Stars

  • Philippe Eenens (a1)

Abstract

A brief review of the observational properties of evolved massive stars is presented. In the pursuit of clues for their rotation, formidable difficulties are encountered. At the same time, common features emerge between B[e] supergiants, Luminous Blue Variables and Wolf-Rayet stars. Several indications of rapid rotation are found, mostly indirect ones, in each class. It is shown that fast rotation can probably survive the mass loss events which characterize the late evolution of massive stars.
