Confronting the new generation of stellar model atmospheres with observations

Pereira, Tiago Mendes Domingos


Stellar model atmospheres are a fundamental tool for our understanding of stars. Because the chemical composition of stars cannot be measured directly, the inferred stellar parameters are model dependent. In recent years great progress has been made in the modeling of stellar atmospheres, allowing the relaxation of simplifying assumptions made in previous models. The use of new 3D model atmospheres to infer the solar chemical composition has resulted in a decrease of the solar metallicity. This...[Show more]
