The pulsation modes, masses and evolution of luminous red giants

Wood, Peter R

Description

The period-luminosity sequences and the multiple periods of luminous red giant stars are examined using the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment III catalogue of long-period variables in the Large Magellanic Cloud. It is shown that the period ratios in individual multimode stars are systematically different from the ratios of the periods at a given luminosity of different period-luminosity sequences. This leads to the conclusion that the masses of stars at the same luminosity on the...[Show more]
