Dynamical opacity-sampling models of Mira variables - I. Modelling description and analysis of approximations

Scholz, M; Wood, Peter R; Ireland, Michael


We describe the Cool Opacity-sampling Dynamic EXtended (codex) atmosphere models of Mira variable stars, and examine in detail the physical and numerical approximations that go in-to the model creation. The codex atmospheric models are obtained by computing the temperature and the chemical and radiative states of the atmospheric layers, assuming gas pressure and velocity profiles from Mira pulsation models, which extend from near the H-burning shell to the outer layers of the atmosphere....[Show more]
