Abstract
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.
