As an extension of our previous investigations on stellar atmospheres (Claret 2000), the limb-darkening coefficients for the Geneva and Walraven photometric systems are presented for the first time using the ATLAS and PHOENIX models. They cover a wide range of values of log g, $T_{\rm eff}$, metallicities and microturbulent velocities. In addition to the traditional applications of limb-darkening coefficients, the present ones are now being used in the interpretation of phase shift of B and A-F type pulsating stars.

Key words: stars: atmospheres -- stars: binaries: eclipsing -- stars: abundances

What is OpenURL?

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.

An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.

  • If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see http://www.openly.com/openurlref/). You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
