Fundamental unsolved difficulties of stellar astrophysics comprise the consequences of angular momentum on stellar constitution and evolution, the character and potency of the tactics through which angular momentum is redistributed inside of and misplaced from stars, and the function that stellar rotation performs in bettering or riding stellar mass loss. There seems to be a qualitative switch within the nature and potency of those mechanisms close to spectral style FO: warmer (more enormous) stars regularly continue extra angular momentum not less than till they achieve the most series, whereas cooler stars in most cases spin down fast. For the warmer stars, contemporary paintings indicates a powerful hyperlink among the kind of pulsation habit, the mass loss charges, and the rotation speed. If a similar mechanisms may be able to force mass loss from the most series A stars, as has lately been proposed, then the present interpretations of a couple of observations may be significantly affected: e. g. the a while of clusters could be fallacious by means of as much as an element of 2, and the skin abundances of isotopes of He, Li and Be could not provide constraints on cosmological nucleosynthesis. There also are results at the evolution of the abundances of parts within the interstellar medium and at the common evolution of populations of stars. hence the questions of the mechanisms of angular momentum and mass lack of stars extra huge than the sunlight is critical not just for stellar reports yet for the principles of a lot of contemporary astrophysics.

There is no hope to calculate these functions with any accuracy. ) By making use of equation (2), one can at least find under what condition the asymptotic expansion (4) for Q converges. This condition, Elw11 < I, re~uires that on~ has tv < t ES ' where t is the viscous time scale. If we let ~t = 10"llr' where ~r is the ra~iative viscosity, this6rfisu1t implies that our steady solutions remain val~d as long as EI0 - <1 in the models. Since one has typically E ~ 10- , one must thus let N ~ 4-5 (say) -- a lower limit which is quite sim~lar to those encountered in geophysics.

A mere inspection of their paper shows that their solution is not consistent because the circulation velocity normal to the free surface does not vanish there. as it is required by condition (7). g •• Charney 1955). 4. Grounds for Turbulence in a Stellar Radiative Zone It is immediately apparent from the newly proposed solution that some kind of viscous action is needed for the following three reasons: (i) the ever-present barotropic-baroclinic instabilities in a rotating star generate a whole spectrum of anisotropic turbulent motions.

379. NEW EVOLUTIONARY ASPECTS OF MASS LOSS AND ANGULAR MOMENTUM Andre Maeder Geneva Observatory CH-1290 Sauverny, Switzerland ABSTRACT. After a brief summary of the main effects of mass 1088 on m&88ive star evolution, the interest is focused on several topical problems, likely promised to interesting future developments. In particular, the effects of metallicity on the evolution of massive stars and on their very different distributions in galaxies are firstly considered. We then review the case of the vibrational pulsations theoretically predicted in Wolf-Rayet stars and their possible relation with the high mass loss rates of these objects.
