Dynamical mass loss from unstable giants

Abstract:

Giant stars are believed to lose significant fractions of their total mass over their lifetimes, but the mechanisms responsible for this are ill-understood. One possible mechanism is dynamical mass loss – a hydrodynamical process in which matter is ejected from the stellar surface in ballistic outflows.

In this thesis, dynamical mass loss is studied in three stellar regimes: common-envelope objects, asymptotic giant branch stars, and red supergiants. Using hydrodynamical simulations...
