Summary
What does recent research reveal about the structure of stars that. are not like. the Sun?
There seems be much understanding of the internal structure the Sun for instance its several layers,thecore, the radiative and convections zones, the corona and so forth. What is known about stars that are not like the Sun? I was particularly thinking blue or red super giants.

There is a huge field of knowledge about the structure of stars, including stars of many different masses and ages. People spend their careers on it, so there is not a simple answer. You could start with this Wikipedia page. The first source there (Kippenhahn, R.; Weigert, A. (1990), Stellar Structure and Evolution, Springer-Verlag) is an excellent reference.
