Research Area: STELLAR STRUCTURE AND EVOLUTION

Topics covered in this research area

  • Stellar evolution, especially the late stages, for example:
    • Mass loss
    • Planetary nebulae
    • Supernovae
  • Stellar surface abundances
  • Stellar surface structures
  • Stellar pulsations
  • Stellar magnetic fields and magnetic activity
  • Low mass stars
  • Black holes and neutron stars

These research topics are covered using observations from X-rays to Infrared, and with many different techniques, e.g., high resolution optical/IR spectroscopy, optical interferometry and polarimetry.

People working on this research area also meet regularly in so-called "stellar coffee".
