Being a 4th year undergraduate physicist, you'd think I'd know this! But it's never really taught in any detail, just vague mentions of metallicities and, in galactic case, redshift. So how exactly ...
I'm reading some literature on mass loss in the RGB/AGB branches and so far I'm getting a lot of information regarding mass loss via dusty-winds/pulsations but almost no explanation of mass loss by ...
Is there a way to model/predict the evolution and life cycle of a star based on certain initial conditions? That is, whether it will become a red giant, brown dwarf, etc. I'm basically looking for ...
Are there formulae for calculating stellar luminosity and effective temperature as a function of age?
Is there a manageable formula or set of formulas or simple algorithms that approximate stellar luminosity and effective temperature (or radius) as a function of stellar age? I'm aware that accurate ...
