Abstract: 

Internal Gravity Waves (IGW) can lead to angular momentum transport and chemical mixing in stellar interiors. In this talk I will  present numerical simulations of these waves in massive stars and discuss how they might contribute to the understanding of a variety of observational mysteries.
