Abstract: It has long been clear that most, if not all, of the mass loss experienced by stars from 0.8 to 8 solar masses occurs near the tip of the AGB and/or the RGB. Evolutionary studies have incorporated empirical mass loss laws but theoretical models suggest quite different dependence of mass loss rate on stellar parameters. Here we explore what happens when the theoretical AGB formula is extrapolated to the RGB.
