CAOSP abstracts, Volume: 38, No.: 2, year: 2008

Abstract: Many issues have arisen with the increasing variety of observations of roAp stars. I will discuss the blue-to-red motion in the line profile variation which have recently been found in Nd III and Pr III lines in many roAp stars. To understand the rapid oscillations in Ap stars, the influence of magnetic fields and chemical peculiarity must be taken into account. I will discuss the wave propagation in a stratified plane atmosphere with a magnetic field as fundamental concepts.
