Variable Red Giants

  • Franz Kerschbaum (a1) and Walter Nowotny (a1)

Abstract

The longest-known class of pulsating variable stars, namely pulsating red giants, is also the one that involves the most complex physical processes. Pulsation, mass loss, nuclear synthesis, mixing, atmospheric and circumstellar chemistry and dust formation all interrelate with one another and make both the observational studies and the modelling efforts quite challenging. The paper outlines some of the current key questions, and recommends observational strategies.
