Abstract: The red giant region in the H-R diagram can be occupied by stars in the hydrogen-shell burning phase as well as stars in the helium-burning phase. We have studied the evolution of a 3 MSolar star in these two phases. The helium-burning phase can give rise to the development a of semi-convective region. We study the implications of the lack of an adequated semi-convective treatment and we present preliminary results on the oscillation properties of the stellar models in the red giant phase.
