  1. 1. Molecules and Dust around AGB stars : Mass-loss rates and molecular abundances

    Författare :Sofia Ramstedt; Hans Olofsson; Fredrik Schöier; José Cernicharo; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGB stars; mass-loss; circumstellar abundances; Formation and development of stars; Stjärnors bildning och utveckling; Astronomy; astronomi;

    Sammanfattning : All stars with a stellar mass of about 0.8–8 MSun will end their lives as asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars. Through their extensive mass loss the AGB stars constitutes an important source of nuclear processed material. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Stellar Winds of Cool Giants : Investigating the Mass-Loss Mechanism of AGB Stars

    Författare :Sofie Liljegren; Susanne Höfner; Kjell Eriksson; Bernd Freytag; Hans Olofsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; late-type stars; AGB stars; stellar winds; stellar atmospheres; dust; stellar pulsation; hydrodynamics; radiative transfer;

    Sammanfattning : Asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars are luminous cool giants of low to intermediate mass that are strongly pulsating and non-spherical, with heavy mass loss through a stellar wind. The mass loss makes these stars important for galactic chemistry, as the wind enriches the interstellar medium with new elements and dust, and it determines the final fate of these stars. LÄS MER

  3. 3. On the Winds of Carbon Stars and the Origin of Carbon : A Theoretical Study

    Författare :Lars Mattsson; Susanne Höfner; Nils Bergvall; Kjell Olofsson; Martin Groenewegen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGB stars; carbon stars; mass loss; stellar winds; circumstellar matter; cosmic dust; stellar evolution; nucleosynthesis; galactic chemical evolution; Astronomy and astrophysics; Astronomi och astrofysik; Astronomy; Astronomi; Fysik; Physics;

    Sammanfattning : Carbon is the basis for life, as we know it, but its origin is still largely unclear. Carbon-rich Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars (carbon stars) play an important rôle in the cosmic matter cycle and may contribute most of the carbon in the Galaxy. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Dynamical atmospheres and winds of M-type AGB stars

    Författare :Sara Bladh; Susanne Höfner; Kjell Eriksson; Patricia Whitelock; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Late-type stars; AGB stars; stellar winds; atmospheres; mass-loss; outflows; circumstellar matter; dust; hydroynamics; radiative transfer; Astronomy with specialization in Astrophysics; Astronomi med intiktning mot astrofysik;

    Sammanfattning : Mass loss, in the form of slow stellar winds, is a decisive factor for the evolution of cool luminous giants, eventually turning them into white dwarfs. These dense outflows are also a key factor in the enrichment of the interstellar medium with newly produced elements from the interior of these stars. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Studies of the S-type AGB star W Aquilae : The circumstellar envelope and the fain companion

    Författare :Taissa Danilovich; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; stars: binaries: spectroscopic; circumstellar matter; stars: binaries: visual; stars: evolution; stars: mass-loss; stars: AGB and post-AGB; stars: individual: W Aql;

    Sammanfattning : Low- and intermediate-mass stars will all eventually enter the asymptotic giant branch (AGB) phase. AGB stars experience intense mass-loss, generating a significant fraction of the dust and molecular matter that enrichesthe ISM. AGB stars are also responsible for a the production of about half of all elements heavier than iron. LÄS MER
