parsec: stellar tracks and isochrones with the PAdova and TRieste Stellar Evolution Code
We present the updated version of the code used to compute stellar evolutionary tracks in Padova. It is the result of a thorough revision of the major in put physics, together with the inclusion ofExpand
Evolution of asymptotic giant branch stars. II. Optical to far-infrared isochrones with improved TP-
We present a large set of theoretical isochrones, whose distinctive features mostly reside on the greatly-improved treatment of the thermally-pulsing asymptotic giant branch (TP-AGB) phase.Expand
Theoretical isochrones in several photometric systems I. Johnson-Cousins-Glass, HST/WFPC2, HST/NICMOS, Washington, and ESO Imaging Survey filter sets
We provide tables of theoretical isochrones in several photometric systems. To this aim, the following steps are followed: (1) first, we re-write the formalism for converting synthetic stellarExpand
Scaled solar tracks and isochrones in a large region of the Z-Y plane I. From the ZAMS to the TP-A
Context. In many astrophysical contexts, the helium content of stars may differ significantly from those usually assumed in evolution- ary calculations. Aims. In order to improve upon this situation,Expand
A New Generation of PARSEC-COLIBRI Stellar Isochrones Including the TP-AGB Phase
We introduce a new generation of PARSEC-COLIBRI stellar isochrones that include a detailed treatment of the thermally-pulsing asymptotic giant branch (TP-AGB) phase, and covering a wide range ofExpand
Improving PARSEC models for very low mass stars
Many stellar models present difficulties in reproducing basic observational relations of very low mass stars (VLMS), including the mass--radius relation and the optical colour--magnitudes of coolExpand
Evolution of asymptotic giant branch stars. I. Updated synthetic TP-AGB models and their basic calibration
We present new synthetic models of the TP-AGB evolution. They are computed for 7 values of initial metal content (Z from 0.0001 to 0.03) and for initial masses between 0.5 and 5.0 M� , thus extendingExpand
PARSEC evolutionary tracks of massive stars up to 350 M ☉ at metallicities 0.0001 ≤ Z ≤ 0.04
We complement the PARSEC data base of stellar evolutionary tracks with new models of massive stars, from the pre-main sequence phase to the central carbon ignition. We consider a broad range ofExpand
New PARSEC evolutionary tracks of massive stars at low metallicity: testing canonical stellar evolution in nearby star-forming dwarf galaxies
We extend the {\sl\,PARSEC} library of stellar evolutionary tracks by computing new models of massive stars, from 14\Msun to 350\Msun. The input physics is the same used in the {\sl\,PARSEC}~V1.1Expand
Chemical yields from low- and intermediate-mass stars: Model predictions and basic observational constraints
In this work we analyse the role of low- and intermediate-mass stars in contributing to the chemical enrichment of the interstellar medium. First we present new sets of stellar yields basing on theExpand
