Light elements as diagnostics on the structure and evolution of low-mass stars

  • Suzanne Talon (a1) and Corinne Charbonnel (a2) (a3)

Abstract

Low-mass stars exhibit, at all stages of their evolution, the signatures of complex physical processes that require challenging modelling beyond standard stellar theory. In this review, we focus on lithium depletion in low-mass stars. After disecting the Li dip, we discuss how large scale mixing due to rotation and internal gravity waves may interact to explain this feature. We also briefly discuss the impact that is expected on Population II stars.
