Nucleosynthesis in Red Giant Stars

Abstract

The production of elements from helium-3 to fluorine in low- and intermediate-mass stars is reviewed and compared to chemical abundances observed at the surface of both red giant branch and asymptotic giant branch stars. It is highlighted that, while the trends predicted by standard models are generally well confirmed, many chemical abundances observed at the surface of red giants require the operation of non-standard mixing in the stellar interior. In addition, chemical abundance predictions from presently available asymptotic giant branch models further suffer from the uncertainties affecting the third dredge-up phenomenon, the source of neutrons and the hot bottom burning process.
