Red giant structure: After the red giant branch of stellar evolution there is a brief period where the $\rm{He}$ core burns called the horizontal branch. Once the He core is exhausted (it's been converted to $\rm{C}$ and $\rm{O}$), the star starts on the asymptotic giant branch.   The first book in this line, Astrophysics of Red Supergiants, is authored by Dr. Emily Levesque, assistant professor in the astronomy department at the University of Washington and winner of the AAS’s Annie Jump Cannon Award, and it’s now available for download with an institutional IOP ebook subscription.

A yellow supergiant (YSG) is a supergiant star of spectral type F or G. These stars have initial masses between about 10 and 40 solar masses, although some yellow supergiants will have lost over half of that. Lower-mass stars have lower luminosities and are seen as yellow giants. Higher-mass stars do not expand beyond blue supergiants.. Most yellow supergiants are cooling and expanding rapidly. A comparison with galactic AGB stars and red supergiants shows excellent agreement between the mass-loss rate as predicted by our formula and that derived from the 60 micron flux density for dust-enshrouded objects, but not for optically bright objects.

### Mass loss in red giants and supergiants by Fred Sanner Download PDF EPUB FB2

Optical astronomers can measure the atomic component of winds from red giant stars that are undergoing mass loss at modest rates 6 (M \$ M9/yr.).

But to see dust grains and molecules properly, 5 especially in stars with truly large mass loss rates, ~ M9/yr, one requires IR and radio astronomy.

The circumstellar envelopes surrounding 13 late-type giants and supergiants have been studied using a homogeneous collection of high-resolution photoelectric scans of strong optical resonance lines.

Asymptotic-giant-branch (AGB) and post-AGB stars are highly evolved lower-mass red giants with luminosities that can be comparable to more massive red supergiants, but because of their low mass, being in a different stage of development (helium shell burning), and their lives ending in a different way (planetary nebula and white dwarf rather.

They then either explode as a hydrogen-rich supernova (SN Type II), or continue to evolve as a hotter supergiant (before exploding).

The slow, dusty ejecta of the red supergiant will be over-run by the hot star wind and/or SN ejecta. I will present estimates of the conditions. Cite this paper as: Drake S.A.

() Mass loss estimates in cool giants and supergiants. In: Zeilik M., Gibson D.M. (eds) Cool Stars, Stellar. Mass-loss rates are one of the most relevant parameters determining the evolution of massive stars. In particular, the rates at which the star loses mass during the red-supergiant (RSG) phase is the least constrained by the observations or theory.

In this paper, we show how the mass loss during the RSG phase affects the later evolution of the star, as well as the final type of supernova.

For lower-mass red giants, interferometric data for nearby stars can be used to assemble an effective temperature scale, but there are too few nearby RSGs to employ this method at higher masses, and simply shifting red giant scales to apply them to RSGs offers only a very rough approximation (e.g., Massey & Olsen ).

To study how mass-loss rates change with evolution we measure the mass-loss rates (\mdot) and extinctions of 19 red supergiants in the young massive cluster NGC in the Large Magellanic Cloud.

A red supergiant star is a larger and brighter type of red giant star. Red supergiants are often variable stars and are between to 2, times bigger than the example of a red supergiant star is Antares. Tauri, Betelgeuse, Mu Cephei, and VV Cephei are other famous examples of red supergiants.

Most red supergiant stars explode as supernovae, but some of the brightest become. A star's evolution after the red giant phase depends on its mass. For stars greater than 1 solar mass, but less than 2 solar masses, the hydrogen burning shell eats its way outward leaving behind more helium ash.

As the helium piles up, the core becomes more massive and contracts. The contraction heats the core as it becomes more dense. The AGB Newsletter invites contributions related to Asymptotic Giant Branch stars and less and more luminous red giants and supergiants; dealing with their structure, behaviour, evolution or mass loss, with their impact on the dynamical and chemical evolution of galaxies or their use as tracers of intermediate-age populations.

A comparison with galactic AGB stars and red supergiants shows excellent agreement between the mass-loss rate as predicted by our formula and that derived from the 60 micron flux density for dust-enshrouded objects, but not for optically bright objects.

We discuss the possible implications of this for the mass-loss mechanism. In this Chapter we examine the role of the ngVLA to further our understanding of the different manifestations of convective or turbulence-driven stellar activity on red giant and supergiant stars. The combination of high spatial resolution and high sensitivity will enable the ngVLA to significantly improve our understanding of the processes that dissipate energy in the extended atmospheres of.

Compared to the high numbers of main sequence and red supergiant stars, yellow giant stars are exceedingly rare. This is evident from the fact that a recent study identified only 16 yellow giant stars in a region of M31 (Andromeda galaxy) that contained more t O-type stars.

This balance was explored in a paper published in and determined that, for an Earth mass planet, the free CO 2 would be exhausted long before the parent star even reached the red giant.

Using the PACS and SPIRE spectrometers on-board the Herschel Space Observatory, we obtained spectra of two red supergiants (RSGs) in the Large MagellanicCloud (LMC).

Multiple rotational CO emission lines (J = to ) and 15 H2O lines were detected from IRASand one CO line was detected from WOH G This is the first time that CO rotational lines have been detected. Mass loss in red giants and supergiants.

Various properties of the envelopes, including the mass loss rate, dilution. However, when our Sun reaches its Red Giant Branch phase, it is only expected to have million years of active life left.

This is not quite enough time for new lifeforms to emerge, evolve and.Supergiants are so massive, in spite of great mass loss through huge winds, that nuclear fusion can proceed farther than it can in ordinary giants.

When the helium runs out, the carbon and oxygen mixture compresses and heats, causing it to fuse to a mixture of neon, magnesium and oxygen.
