Within the framework of the current models for the slow neutron capture (s) process in Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars we explore the uncertainties introduced by the assumptions made on stellar modeling. On the basis of star models constructed with three different evolutionary codes we generate detailed neutron-capture nucleosynthesis post-processing models. The main difference among the codes is that one of them includes an overshooting mechanism. As a result, the neutron fluxes are… Expand

THE s-PROCESS IN ROTATING ASYMPTOTIC GIANT BRANCH STARS
We model the nucleosynthesis during the thermal pulse phase of a rotating, solar metallicity, asymptotic giant branch (AGB) star of 3 M☉, which was evolved from a main-sequence model rotating withExpand
s-Process Nucleosynthesis in Asymptotic Giant Branch Stars: A Test for Stellar Evolution
We study the slow neutron capture process (s-process) in asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars using three different stellar evolutionary models computed for a 3 M☉, solar metallicity star. First weExpand
The s-process in rotating AGB stars
We discuss the occurrence of the s-process during the radiative interpulse phase of rotating AGB stars. Due to differential rotation, protons are mixed into C12-rich layers after thermal pulses, inExpand
Current Models for the Evolution of AGB Stars (invited review)
While the basic properties of AGB stellar evolution are well established, comprehensive observational studies of late phases of intermediate mass stars continue to generate puzzles for currentExpand
Fe-deficiency in H-deficient post-AGB stars due to n-capture nucleosynthesis
H-deficient post-AGB objects, e.g. PG1159 type star K1-16 and born-again AGB star Sakurai's object, have been reported to be significantly iron-deficient. We find that the iron deficiencies expectedExpand
Astrophysical S factor for 13 CÑp,gÖ 14 N and asymptotic normalization coefficients
We reanalyze the 13 C(p,g) 14 N radiative capture reaction within the R-matrix approach. The low-energy astrophysical S factor has important contributions from both resonant and onresonant captures.Expand
Isotopic Compositions of Strontium, Zirconium, Molybdenum, and Barium in Single Presolar SiC Grains and Asymptotic Giant Branch Stars
The strontium, zirconium, molybdenum, and barium isotopic compositions predicted in the mass-losing envelopes of asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars of solar metallicity and mass 1.5, 3, and 5 M☉ areExpand
