Influence of Rotation on Stellar Evolution    [PDF]

A. Palacios
The Sun has been known to rotate for more than 4 centuries, and evidence is also available through direct measurements, that almost all stars rotate. In this lecture, I will propose a review of the different physical processes associated to rotation that are expected to impact the evolution of stars. I will describe in detail the way these physical processes are introduced in 1D stellar evolution codes and how their introduction in the modelling has impacted our understanding of the internal structure, nucleosynthesis and global evolution of stars.
