Abstract: The effects of a warp at the inner edge of the accretion disk and of hot spots on the stellar surface on the photometric and polarimetric light curves of the T Tauri star AA Tau are studied. It is shown that the main features of AA Tau's photopolarimetric variations can be explained by the presence of a wall, and constraints on disk parameters are drawn out.
