[more ▼]Aims. We selected a large sample of O-B stars that were considered as (candidate) slowly pulsating B, beta Cep, and Maia stars after the analysis of their hipparcos data. We analysed our new seven passband geneva data collected for these stars during the first three years of scientific operations of the mercator telescope. We performed a frequency analysis for 28 targets with more than 50 high-quality measurements to improve their variability classification. For the pulsating stars, we tried both to identify the modes and to search for rotationally split modes. Methods: We searched for frequencies in all the geneva passbands and colours by using two independent frequency analysis methods and we applied a 3.6 S/N-level criterion to locate the significant peaks in the periodograms. The modes were identified by applying the method of photometric amplitudes for which we calculated a large, homogeneous grid of equilibrium models to perform a pulsational stability analysis. When both the radius and the projected rotational velocity of an object are known, we determined a lower limit for the rotation frequency to estimate the expected frequency spacings in rotationally split pulsation modes. Results: We detected 61 frequencies, among which 33 are new. We classified 21 objects as pulsating variables (7 new confirmed pulsating stars, including 2 hybrid beta Cep/SPB stars), 6 as non-pulsating variables (binaries or spotted stars), and 1 as photometrically constant. All the Maia candidates were reclassified into other variability classes. We performed mode identification for the pulsating variables for the first time. The most probable l value is 0, 1, 2, and 4 for 1, 31, 9, and 5 modes, respectively, including only 4 unambiguous identifications. For 7 stars we cannot rule out that some of the observed frequencies belong to the same rotationally split mode. For 4 targets we may begin to resolve close frequency multiplets.

[more ▼]The discovery of beta Cephei stars in low-metallicity environments, as well as the difficulty in theoretically explaining the excitation of the pulsation modes observed in some beta Cephei and hybrid slowly pulsating B-beta Cephei pulsators, suggest that the iron opacity bump' provided by stellar models could be underestimated. We analyze the effect of uncertainties in the opacity computations and in the solar metal mixture on the excitation of pulsation modes in B-type stars. We carry out a pulsational stability analysis for four grids of main-sequence models with masses between 2.5 and 12M[SUB]solar[/SUB] computed with OPAL and OP opacity tables and two different metal mixtures. We find that in a typical beta Cephei model the OP opacity is 25 per cent larger than OPAL in the region where the driving of pulsation modes occurs. Furthermore, the difference in the Fe mass fraction between the two metal mixtures considered is of the order of 20 per cent. The implication on the excitation of pulsation modes is non-negligible: the blue border of the slowly pulsating B star (SPB) instability strip is displaced at higher effective temperatures, leading to a larger number of models being hybrid SPB-beta Cephei pulsators. Moreover, higher overtone p-modes are excited in beta Cephei models and unstable modes are found in a larger number of models for lower metallicities, in particular beta Cephei pulsations are also found in models with Z = 0.01.

[more ▼]We present a seismic study of the beta Cephei star theta Ophiuchi. Our analysis is based on the observation of one radial mode, one rotationally split l = 1 triplet and three components of a rotationally split l = 2 quintuplet for which the m values were well identified by spectroscopy. We identify the radial mode as fundamental, the triplet as p(1) and the quintuplet as g(1). Our non-local thermodynamic equilibrium abundance analysis results in a metallicity and CNO abundances in full agreement with the most recent updated solar values. With X epsilon [0.71, 0.7211] and Z epsilon [0.009, 0.015], and using the Asplund et al. mixture but with a Ne abundance about 0.3 dex larger, the matching of the three independent modes enables us to deduce constrained ranges for the mass (M = 8.2 +/- 0.3 M circle dot) and central hydrogen abundance (X-c = 0.38 +/- 0.02) of theta Oph and to prove the occurrence of core overshooting (alpha(ov) = 0.44 +/- 0.07). We also derive an equatorial rotation velocity of 29 +/- 7 km s(-1). Moreover, we show that the observed non-equidistance of the l = 1 triplet can be reproduced by the second-order effects of rotation. Finally, we show that the observed rotational splitting of two modes cannot rule out a rigid rotation model.

[more ▼]The approximation known as Frozen Convection has been widely used in the context of stellar oscillations due to the lack of a Time Dependent Convection theory. This approximation supposes to neglect the interaction between convection and oscillations and there are different ways to do it. The choice can affect theoretical predictions concerning the non-adiabatic treatment of the stellar oscillations. In fact, fictitious excitation or damping of the pulsation modes can be produced depending on the approximation used.

[more ▼]In order to prepare the theoretical interpretation of the oscillation frequencies detected by CoRoT, comparisons of results from standard stellar models by the ESTA group have proven to be very useful. The next issue which is briefly addressed here is `what are the additional physical processes that must be included in stellar models computed with different evolutionary codes for the next comparison exercises?'' We therefore discuss the impact on oscillation frequencies of several physical processes which are still poorly understood and/or poorly modelled but cannot be fully discarded.

This will provide constraints on the modelling of transport mechanisms of angular momentum acting in radiative (rotationally induced turbulent) and convective zones (plumes, extension beyond convectively instable regions). Relations between the surface rotation period and age, magnetic activity, mass loss and other stellar characteristics can also be studied with a statistically significant set of data as will be provided by Corot. We present various theoretical efforts performed over the past years in order to develope the theoretical tools which will enable us to study rotation with Corot.

[more ▼]The variability of HD 239276 was suspected photometrically nearly twenty years ago, but was confirmed with new observations obtained in 2001 during a two-site photometric campaign carried out from Spain, in uvbybeta Strömgren-Crawford photometry, and China, using the Johnson V filter. Two low-dispersion spectra were also collected. The results establish this star as a new multiperiodic gamma Dor-type pulsator with deficiency in metallicity. Its possible lambda Boo nature is discussed. The frequency analysis shows three pulsational frequencies as significant, but some more are probably present among the residuals. The method based on phase shifts and amplitude ratios in multicolour photometry is used to identify the excited modes with non-adiabatic time-dependent convection models. A very good agreement between the theoretical and observed amplitude ratios is obtained and the two main modes are identified as l=1 modes. Nevertheless, our results do not allow us to discriminate between a solar abundance and a metal deficient nature for this star. The frequency ratio method is further used for the identification of the modes. The results suggest low metallicity for this star, but a lambda Boo nature may be not ruled out.

[more ▼]Oscillations of gamma Dor-type were discovered in the star HD 218427 through simultaneous uvby photometric observations carried out in the year 2003. A few Hbeta-Crawford measurements were also collected for calibration purposes and they locate this star well inside the gamma Dor instability region. We find HD 218427 to be deficient in metals, similar to other well-defined gamma Dor stars, and discuss the possibility that it has a lambda Boo nature. We carried out frequency analysis for different filters, including the combined "vby" filter, and five frequencies were found as significant with periods ranging between 0.3 and 0.8 days. The recently-developed frequency ratio method is used in order to identify the excited modes. The results are consistent with an l=2 identification for all the modes and with high radial quantum numbers (nË 40) for the three main observed periodicities. The possibility of multiplet structures is also discussed. However, no consistency is found when using the time-dependent convection treatment to discriminate modes. This disagreement can be due to the large rotation velocity taking place in HD 218427 and, consequently, the significant coupling between the modes.

These oscillation modes are driven by the so-called kappa-mechanism involving the second helium ionization zone. However, since g modes have significant amplitudes near the stellar core, their excitation might be influenced by the epsilon-mechanism which is associated to the nuclear energy production. We investigate the effect of the epsilon-mechanism on the stability of oscillation modes in 1.5 M(solar) pre-main sequence and main sequence stars.
