Magnetic properties of intermediate-mass stars
Department of Physics, Royal Military College of Canada
Magnetic fields play an important role in producing and modifying the photospheric chemical peculiarities of intermediate-mass main sequence stars. This article discusses the basic theory and methods of measurement used to detect and characterise stellar magnetic fields, and reviews our current knowledge of selected characteristics of magnetic fields in intermediate-mass stars.
