Résumé

Stellar X-ray spectroscopy and polarimetry are discussed in terms of the source parameters that can be determined through such studies and in terms of the constraints that these studies will place on theoretical models. The spectroscopic and polarimetric results that have been obtained to date are reviewed. These include the recent discovery of X-ray polarization in the Crab Nebula and the recent evidence for X-ray coronal line emission in the Cygnus Loop. Finally, the properties and predicted performance of a number of satellite-borne spectrometers and polarimeters are presented.
