Actually, I would like to know the typical magnetic field in high mass stars. I tried to find in google, but I couldnt. Maybe I should try it harder. But if someone know a reference, I would be glad.

For a good overview of magnetic fields associated with stars all along the HR diagram this is a good paper to start with:


Good luck with researching magnetic fields - you'll need it.
