Mass-Losing Pulsating Stars and Their Circumstellar Matter: Observations and Theory written by Y. Nakada

 

Mass-Losing Pulsating Stars and Their Circumstellar Matter: Observations and Theory written by Y. Nakada

Overview:

The rapid progress in research on mass-losing pulsating stars has now taken us far from its early photographic light variation study to the world of massive photometry and interferometic observations. Still some fundamental problems such as the pulsational mode and the mass-loss mechanism remain a mystery.
In this volume the modern theoretical works are confronted with the latest observations and the active discussions indicate the directions of future research.
Among the subjects presented in this workshop are: recent results of massive photometry; pulsation and properties of mass-losing stars; optical and infrared observations of circumstellar matter; radio and mm observations of circumstellar matter; distribution of maser sources in the Galaxy; VERA and other future projects.
Thorough and up-to-date information on mass-losing stars provides invaluable references for all researchers and students who are interested in the AGB evolution, pulsation models, circumstellar matter, precision astrometry, and the Galactic structure.

Synopsis:

Optical, infrared, and radio astronomers met in May 2002 to share the latest results elucidating the nature of mass-losing pulsating stars, characterized by their strong stellar wind or enormous circumstellar matter. Nakada (Kiso Observatory, U. of Tokyo) collects 93 papers addressing: recent results of massive photometry, pulsation and properties of such stars, optical and infrared observations, radio and molecular data, maser surveys of the Galactic center, and future projects (e.g, VERA, VLBI Exploration of Radio Astronomy). Summary remarks cite lack of an accurate treatment of convection as the main deficiency in stellar evolution calculations. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
