Title: Synergies between CFHT and TESS

Presenter: Alexandre David-uraz


In this presentation, I will discuss various possible synergies between CFHT facilities and ongoing space-based missions such as TESS. In particular, I will focus on the MOBSTER project (Magnetic OB[A] Stars with TESS: probing their Evolutionary and Rotational properties), presenting early results and discussing a larger observational strategy that leverages the exquisite photometry obtained with TESS to extend prior magnetic surveys carried out with ESPaDOnS in a very cost-effective manner. Studies of magnetism in OBA stars, especially at the higher-mass end, are severely hampered by small-number statistics; our proposed approach will address that problem.
