Rotation appears as a dominant effect in massive star evolution. It largely
affects all the model outputs: inner structure, tracks, lifetimes, isochrones,
surface compositions, blue to red supergiant ratios, etc. At lower
metallicities, the effects of rotational mixing are larger; also, more stars
may reach critical velocity, even if the initial distribution of rotational
velocities is the same.
