Shell Source Burning Stars With Highly Condensed Cores, S. Refsdal, A. Weigert Jan 1970

Shell Source Burning Stars With Highly Condensed Cores, S. Refsdal, A. Weigert

Faculty Publications, Department of Physics and Astronomy

Simple analytical relations are derived - similar to the homology relations for homogeneous stam - which describe the behaviour of shell source burning models with highly condensed cores. Many features which are known from evolutionary calculations (and partly &om observations) of such stars can be understood as coming essentially from the increase of the mass M6 of the core.
