Hi,

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.

Thanks,
Joao A.

I'm sure you've already checked this, but just in case, here's where to start:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stellar_magnetic_field

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

http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/1999ASPC..158....3L

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

Matty.

Thank you!

The wikepedia article I had already read!

The paper was exactly what I was looking for!
