Evolution of Low- and Intermediate-Mass Stars to the End of the Asymptotic Giant Branch with Mass Loss
Stars with initial masses in the range 0.89≤M/M ○. ≤5.0 have been evolved from the main-sequence phase through to the end of the asymptotic giant branch (AGB). The calculations were done with
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 of
Bump Cepheids in the Magellanic Clouds: Metallicities, the Distances to the LMC and SMC, and the Pulsation-Evolution Mass Discrepancy
We use nonlinear pulsation models to reproduce the observed light and color curves for two samples of bump Cepheid variables, 19 from the Large Magellanic Cloud and 9 from the Small Magellanic Cloud.
The Hubble Space Telescope Key Project on the Extragalactic Distance Scale. XIII. The Metallicity Dependence of the Cepheid Distance Scale
Uncertainty in the metal-abundance dependence of the Cepheid variable period-luminosity (PL) relation remains one of the outstanding sources of systematic error in the extragalactic distance scale
Long-period variables in the Magellanic Clouds: Supergiants, AGB stars, supernova precursors, planetary nebula precursors, and enrichment of the interstellar medium
Infrared JHK magnitudes and low-dispersion red spectra have been obtained for 90 long-period variables (LPVs) in the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds. The LPVs fall into two distinct groups, core
Long-period variables in the Large Magellanic Cloud. II. Infrared photometry, spectral classification, AGB evolution, and spatial distribution
Infrared JHK photometry and visual spectra have been obtained for a large sample of long-period variables (LPVs) in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Various aspects of the asymptotic giant branch

We present a library of 0:5 2:5 m digital spectra of cool, mostly variable, giant and supergiant stars which should be useful for spectral synthesis applications, as well as for comparison with

Abstract Infrared J and K photometry has been obtained of all red giants in the half square degree region of the LMC bar searched for variables using the MACHO database byWood et al. (1999). The
Long period variables in 47 Tuc: direct evidence for lost mass
Received ; accepted Abstract. We have identified 22 new variable red giants in 47 Tuc and dete rmined periods for another 8 previously known variables. All red giants redder than V-Ic = 1.8 are
