Thomas Rivinius

European Southern Observatory

I will show that Be stars are, without exception, a class of  rapidly rotating stars, which are in the majority of cases pulsating stars as well, while none of them does possess a large scale (i.e.\\ with significant dipolar contribution) magnetic field.
