Structure and Evolution of AGB Stars

  • Thomas Blöcker (a1)

Abstract

An overview of the structure and evolution of Asymptotic Giant Branch stars is presented. We focus upon the occurrence of thermal pulses, hot bottom burning and mass loss and summarize briefly the corresponding nucleosynthesis and mixing events. The interplay between these important evolutionary features is discussed.
