  • We performed some numerical computations on the evolution of objects having masses close to the limiting mass for the onset of stable hydrogen burning, for Population I chemical composition (Y = 0.25,Z = 0.02), employing the new opacities by Alexander, Johnson, and Rypma (1983), which take into account molecules and grain formation.
