The pulsation of long-period variables

Fox, Matthew W

Description

The long- period variables are a class of star about which comparatively little is known , despite a long history of observations. In this thesis , the results are presented of pulsation analyses of long-period variables, and of investigations into the shock waves associated with the pulsation. Chapter 2 describes a grid of linear non-adiabatic pulsation models appropriate to galactic disk , population II and supergiant red variables. These are designed to provide a sound theoretical...[Show more]
