Henry Prager, graduaqte student at NMT, will present the Physics Department colloquium. His talk is "Evolution of Low-Mass Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) Stars: An Analytical Approach to Mass Loss." We have compared differing models for AGB stars in terms of a single parameter that describes how mass-loss rate changes with luminosity. Using this parameter, we can describe the mass-loss rate as a power the law of mass and luminosity, and we can integrate the rates over time to obtain the theoretical evolution of an AGB star. 4 p.m. in Workman 101.
