Sammanfattning : This thesis is based on four papers dealing with various aspects of interactions in binary stars. Interactions between stars occur at nearly all stages of their evolution and can take many forms. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The chemical fingerprints of old, metal-poor stars can be used to unravel the events of the newborn Universe and help us understand the properties of the first stars and star clusters. The study of nearby stars to infer properties in the distant past is often referred to as Galactic archaeology. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Massive stars regulate the physical and chemical evolution of galaxies. Most stars within these galaxies, including massive ones, appear to be born in star clusters. However, there are many open questions about how these systems form from diffuse interstellar gas. LÄS MER
4. A Study of Grain Drift in C Stars : Theoretical Modeling of Dust-Driven Winds in Carbon-Rich Pulsating Giant Stars
Sammanfattning : A major fraction of stars will pass through a short period of dramatic events in their final evolutionary stage. Low- to intermediate-mass stars, studied here, are stripped of their outer parts in a slow massive wind. This mass loss reshapes both the star and the surrounding medium. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Massive evolved stars affect their local surroundings as they go through phases of intense mass-loss and eventually explode as supernovae, adding kinetic energy and freshly synthesised material to the interstellar medium. The circumstellar material ejected by the star affects the shape and evolution of the future supernova remnant, and how the material is incorporated into the interstellar medium. LÄS MER
