Editors: Franz Kerschbaum
These proceedings demonstrate the relevance of Asymptotic Giant Branch
(AGB) stars and stellar astrophysics as a whole for our understanding of galactic
structure and evolution.
e meeting, a follow-up to one held in 2006, brought together astronomers
from the fields of AGB stars, galactic evolution, and stellar populations. What
do we know about the post-horizontal branch evolution of low and intermediate
mass stars, such as nucleosynthesis and mass loss, that play a role in our
understanding of galaxies? At the same time, what do galactic modelers need
from the AGB star community, and how are AGB stars included in these
models? What will be the role of AGB star research within the major areas of
astrophysics research in the coming decades? These were the main questions
we wanted to discuss at this conference.
Recent developments in instrumentation, such as the Herschel satellite and
new ground-based instruments, are enabling detailed studies of individual
AGB stars, their complex atmospheres, their envelopes and their interaction
with the interstellar medium. AGB stars are among the first targets to be
resolved in galaxies outside the Local Group. Of equal importance are the
exciting developments that have been achieved in modeling stellar nucleosynthesis,
mass loss, and the evolution of galaxies.
is book is an important resource for researchers interested in stellar and
galactic astrophysics, physical processes related to nucleosynthesis, radiation
hydrodynamics, pulsation, mass loss, and the chemical evolution of stellar
