Physics Department Colloquium

Workman Center

20 Olive Lane
Socorro, NM 87801
United States

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.
