The Advanced Telescope for High-energy Astrophysics (Athena+) is being proposed to ESA as the L2 mission (for a launch in 2028) and is specifically designed to answer two of the most pressing questions for astrophysics in the forthcoming decade: How did ordinary matter assemble into the large scale structures we see today? and how do black holes grow and shape the Universe? For addressing these two issues, Athena+ will provide transformational capabilities in terms of angular resolution, effective area, spectral resolution, grasp, that will make it the most powerful X-ray observatory ever flown. Such an observatory, when opened to the astronomical community, will be used for virtually all classes of astrophysical objects, from high-z gamma-ray bursts to the closest planets in our solar neighborhood. In this paper, we briefly review the core science objectives of Athena+, present the science requirements and the foreseen implementation of the mission, and illustrate its transformational capabilities compared to existing facilities.

We have analysed rotation modulated light-curves of active giants observed with CoRot using spots model. Preliminary results suggest an increase of the surface spot coverage with decreasing rotation period. A maximum of the surface spot coverage seems to occur on giants with effective temperature around 5100 K. Confirmation and interpretation of these preliminary results require groundbased follow-up observations to measure activity indicators, to identify binary systems, and to determine the stellar parameters and evolutionary status of the sample giants.

One important goal of the CoRoT experiment is to obtain information about the internal rotation of stars, in particular the ratio of central to surface rotation rates. 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. [less ▲]
