The integral magnetic field of 53 Cam -
an effect of ring-like element distribution ?

Ewald Gerth and Yurij V. Glagolevskij

Abstract
The magnetic field of a star is the result of integration over its visible hemisphere, related to the information transferring medium: the spectral line profile. Modelling the field structure has to account also for the element distribution in the star's atmosphere. The effect is demonstrated at the well-investigated CP star 53 Cam by fitting the known observational data using a special computer program, which supplies a fourth component to the three magnetic vector components as factor. The theoretically predicted ring-like arrangement of elements around the poles affords the best fitting.

Keywords: Magnetic stars, modelling, element distribution, 53 Cam
