Putting A and F stars into perspective
Victoria Antoci (Stellar Astrophysics Centre, Aarhus University)

A and F type stars occupy a region in the HRD where several physical processes occur: it is in the classical instability strip where the transition between deep and efficient to shallow convective envelopes takes place. This has an impact not only on pulsational stability but also on stellar evolution, activity and transport of angular momentum. In this talk I will give an overview over recent results with a special focus on pulsators such as delta Scuti, gamma Doradus and rapidly oscillating Ap stars. Additionally I will discuss the importance of A and F stars with respect to other scientific fields presented during this conference.
