Line-blanketed model atmospheres for R Coronae Borealis stars and hydrogen-deficient carbon stars

Asplund, Martin; Gustafsson, Bengt; Kiselman, Dan; Eriksson, Kjell


We have constructed line-blanketed model atmospheres for the hydrogen-deficient and carbon-rich R Coronae Borealis (RCrB) stars, as well as for the similar hydrogen-deficient carbon (HdC) stars and the cool extreme helium (EHe) stars. Improved continuum opacities have been used together with realistic line absorption data for atomic and molecular transitions. The observed dereddened fluxes of R CrB are compared with the calculated model fluxes and found to agree best with a model effective...[Show more]
