Invited Review 3.1 Science with the LAMOST 3.1 Science with the LAMOST

Since several years, the LAMOST instrument keeps providing us with detailed knowledge about various astrophysical objects. The extra-galactic part of the LAMOST survey allows us to get understanding about the large-scale structure of the Universe. The stellar part of the LAMOST survey provides information about stars in the Milky Way and the nearby galaxies, allowing us to study the structure and evolution of our Galaxy. In this talk, I will focus on the influence of LAMOST on our knowledge and understanding of the properties of stars treated as individual objects as well as of stars which are representative for different samples. Among those, I will discuss stars belonging to globular and open clusters, stars located in selected areas of the sky (e.g. the Kepler and the K2 fields of view), the metal-poor stars, the hyper-velocity stars, and the stars showing pulsations of different types.
