Nucleosynthesis Predictions for Intermediate-Mass Asymptotic Giant Branch Stars: Comparison to Observations of Type I Planetary Nebulae

Karakas, Amanda; van Raai, M. A.; Lugaro, Maria Anna; Sterling, Nicholas; Dinerstein, Harriet


Type I planetary nebulae (PNe) have high He/H and N/O ratios and are thought to be descendants of stars with initial masses of 3-8 M ⊙. These characteristics indicate that the progenitor stars experienced proton-capture nucleosynthesis at the base of th
