Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


We present a new Doppler imaging study for the Li-rich single K-giant DI Psc. Surface temperature maps are reconstructed for two subsequent rotation cycles. From the time evolution of the spot distribution antisolar-type differential rotation pattern is revealed. We show marks of non-uniform Li-abundance as well. The possible connection between the current evolutionary phase of the star and its magnetic activity is briefly discussed.
