Thermal instability of hydrogen burning shells in very massive stars

  • Y. Tanaka (a1), N. Arimoto (a2) and M. Takeuti (a2)

Extract

Stothers and Chin (1972) examined numerically thermal instability of H burning shells in very massive stars. They reported the discovery of the thermal pulses in the shell on a stage of the contracting core just after the core exhaustion. Their results, however, are inconsequential because the pulses are very feeble and the mechanism of such feeble pulses is not well known at the shell burning phases. In this note, we summarize our analytical method and the results on the possibility of such feeble pulses in H burning shells, of which detailed procedure is described in another paper(Tanaka et al., 1980).
