Dust and molecules are found in a large variety of astrophysical environments, in particular in the circumstellar material ejected by evolved stars. This book brings together the leading astronomers and astrophysicists in the field of molecular astrophysics and stellar physics to discuss the important issues of dust and molecular formation, the role of solids in circumstellar environments, molecules as probes of circumstellar parameters, the stellar contribution to the enrichment of the Galaxy, and the latest observational data in various wavelength domains, in partiular in the infrared with results from the Infrared Space Observatory. The astrophysical senarios include late-type stars, novae, Wolf-Rayet stars, Luminous Blue Variables and supernovae. Audience: Researchers and graduate students in the fields of stellar physics, stellar evolution and astrochemistry.

Door middel van gedetailleerde studies aan de infrarood gegevens van oude sterren is het stof rond koolstofrijke Rode Reuzen onderzocht. De aanwezigheid van een aantal nieuwe materialen in de ruimte is ontdekt. Daarmee is een completer beeld van de samenstelling, locatie en het lot van het stof rond koolstofrijke oude sterren verkregen. Daarmee verschaffen de in dit proefschrift gepresenteerde studies een rijker inzicht in het stof rond oude sterren en deze sterren zelf.

Two specialized new instruments for ESO's VLT, VISIR and CRIRES, spawned the idea for this workshop. CRIRES is a dedicated very high resolution infrared spectrograph; VISIR features a high resolution spectroscopic mode. Together, the instruments combine the sensitivity of an 8m-telescope with the now well-established reliability of VLT-facility instruments. High resolution here means that lines in cool stellar atmospheres and HII-regions can be resolved. The astrophysical topics discussed in this rather specialized workshop range from the inner solar system to active galactic nuclei. There are many possibilities for new discoveries with these instruments, but the unique capability, which becomes available through high-resolution infrared spectroscopy, is the observation of molecular rotational-vibrational transitions in many astrophysical environments. Particularly interesting and surprising in this context, many papers on modeling and laboratory spectroscopy at the workshop appear to indicate that astronomical observations are lagging a bit behind in this field. The papers are an interesting mix of reports from existing high resolution facilities, reports on modeling efforts of synthetic spectra and reports on laboratory spectra. In this sense, a fruitful exchange between molecular physics and astronomy was again accomplished and is documented in this volume.

"These proceedings of an international conference held August 2006 in Vienna, Austria demonstrate the relevance of Asymptotic Giant Branch stars and stellar astrophysics as a whole for our understanding of galactic structure and evolution. The meeting brought together astronomers from the fields of AGB stars, galactic evolution, and stellar populations. What do we know about the various aspects of AGB stars, such as nucleosynthesis and mass loss, that will play a role in our understanding of galaxies? At the same time, what do galactic models need from the AGB star community, and how are AGB starts included in these models? What will be the role of AGB star research within the major aims of astrophysics in the coming decades? These were the main questions we wanted to discuss at this conference. Recent developments in instrumentation such as the Spitzer satellite and current and forthcoming ground-based equipment are enabling detailes studies of individual stars and the exploration of ever more distant stellar systems. AGB stars are among the first targets that can now be resolved in galaxies outside the Local Group. But of equal relevance are the exciting developments that have been achieved in modeling stellar nucleosynthesis, mass loss, and the evolution of galaxies. The book is suitable for researchers and graduate students interested in stellar and extragalactic astrophysics, and in physical processes related to nucleosynthesis, radiation hydrodynamics, pulsation, mass loss, and the chemical evolution of stellar systems." -- supplied by publisher.

The series of ‘Cool Star’ meetings concentrates on the astrophysics of low-mass stars (with masses similar to that of the Sun and lower), including the Sun. The meeting in St. Andrews, Scotland, was the 15th in this series, and focused in particular on the origin of low-mass stars and their planets, as well as the properties of their atmospheres. This volume provides a comprehensive overview of the science presented by the 350 participants of this meeting. The book is suitable for researchers and graduate students interested in the astrophysics of cool stars and the Sun.

The 1996 Summer School of the European Astrophysical Doctoral Network dealt with the atmospheres of stars, the various theories that describe their structure and the interactions with the interior of the stars as well as with the interstellar environment, and the observations that support, modify and sometimes contradict these theories. This volume aims to provide the reader with an insight into problems related to stellar atmospheres both for cool and for hot stars. Furthermore it offers opportunities to deal with modern technologies in analysing observational data versus theoretical modelling.

Written by leading experts in the field, Stellar Spectral Classification is the only book to comprehensively discuss both the foundations and most up-to-date techniques of MK and other spectral classification systems. Definitive and encyclopedic, the book introduces the astrophysics of spectroscopy, reviews the entire field of stellar astronomy, and shows how the well-tested methods of spectral classification are a powerful discovery tool for graduate students and researchers working in astronomy and astrophysics. The book begins with a historical survey, followed by chapters discussing the entire range of stellar phenomena, from brown dwarfs to supernovae. The authors account for advances in the field, including the addition of the L and T dwarf classes; the revision of the carbon star, Wolf-Rayet, and white dwarf classification schemes; and the application of neural nets to spectral classification. Copious figures illustrate the morphology of stellar spectra, and the book incorporates recent discoveries from earth-based and satellite data. Many examples of spectra are given in the red, ultraviolet, and infrared regions, as well as in the traditional blue-violet optical region, all of which are useful for researchers identifying stellar and galactic spectra. This essential reference includes a glossary, handy appendixes and tables, an index, and a Web-based resource of spectra. In addition to the authors, the contributors are Adam J. Burgasser, Margaret M. Hanson, J. Davy Kirkpatrick, and Nolan R. Walborn.
