Abstract (from CDS):

The Microvariability and Oscillations of Stars(MOST) satellite has detected low-amplitude light variations (Δm∼1 mmag) in the Be star β CMi (B8 Ve). The observations lasted 41 days and the variations have typical periods ∼0.3 days. We demonstrate that the dominant frequencies are consistent with prograde high-order g-modes of m=-1 excited by the Fe bump of opacity in an intermediate-mass (~3.5 M) star with a nearly critical rotation period of 0.38 days. This is the first detection of nonradial g-mode pulsations in a Be star later than B6 leading to the possibility that pulsations are excited in all classical Be stars.
