Testing stellar models with observations from AGB and post-AGB stars

Kotachery, Devika Kamath

Description

Low- to intermediate-mass stars (0.8 - 7 M{u2299}) are interesting in a broad astronomical context because they produce large amounts of electromagnetic radiation, they eject large amounts of mass, and the ejected mass contains many products of internal nucleosynthesis. However, theoretical studies of the evolution of red-giants are inhibited by uncertainties in important processes such as mass loss, convective mixing, and grain formation in stellar winds. From an observational point of view it...[Show more]
