Towards an understanding of the Of?p star HD191612: phase-resolved multiwavelength observations.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present the analysis of phase-resolved X-ray and optical observations of the peculiar hot star HD191612 (Of{quest}p). This star is known to display line-profile variations that are recurrent with a period of 538d and its spectrum was found to present the signature of a magnetic field. In the X-rays, it is slightly overluminous compared to the canonical LX/LBOL) relation and appears brighter when the optical lines are strongest. Our XMM-Newton observations further reveal that the X-ray spectrum of HD191612 exhibits rather broad lines and is dominated by a `cool' (0.2-0.6keV) thermal component, two characteristics at odds with the proposed magnetic rotator model. We also report for the first time the low-level variability of the metallic (absorption/emission) lines and Heii absorptions that appear to be associated with radial-velocity shifts. Finally, we compare our results with observations of the early-type stars and discuss several possible scenarios.
