Abstract: It is well known that a stratification in the chemical composition of stars directly influences the properties of gravity modes. As a star evolves on the main-sequence, a chemical composition gradient develops at the edge of the convective core. In this work we study the signature left by such a μ-gradient on the periods of gravity modes.
