We discuss the stellar parameters (M, L, Teff) of a post-AGB star, HD 56126, deduced from observations and non-linear radiative pulsation models. We show that pure radiative pulsation models are in contrast with stellar evolution.
High spectral and time resolution observations show that the monoperiodic β Cephei star BW Vul presents differences in both line profiles and velocities from one cycle to another, which may be due to the consequence of the passage of two strong shock waves.
The new tomographic technique devised by Alvarez et al. (2000) to explore the velocity field across the atmosphere of long-period variable stars (LPVs) is applied to the Mira variable Z Oph. The method cross-correlates the optical spectrum with numerical masks constructed from synthetic spectra and probing layers of increasing depths. This technique reveals that the line doubling often observed in LPVs around maximum light is the signature of the shock wave propagating in the atmosphere of these pulsating stars.
