Post-AGB Stars
▪ Abstract In this contribution, a review is presented on the ample data obtained on post-AGB stars, both on the central stars and their circumstellar material. The fast evolutionary phase is
Infrared Photometry and Evolution of Mass-Losing AGB Stars. II. Luminosity and Colors of MS and S Stars
Context. Asymptotic giant branch (AGB) phases mark the end of the evolution for low- and intermediate-mass stars. Our understanding of the mechanisms through which they eject the envelope and our
Keplerian discs around post-AGB stars: a common phenomenon?
Aims. We aim at showing that the broad-band SED characteristics of our sample of post-AGB stars are best interpreted, assuming the circumstellar dust is stored in Keplerian rotating passive discs.
Post-AGB stars as testbeds of nucleosynthesis in AGB stars
We construct a data base of 125 post-AGB objects (including R CrB and extreme helium stars) with published photospheric parameters (effective temperature and gravity) and chemical composition. We
Infrared photometry and evolution of mass-losing AGB stars - I. Carbon stars revisited
As part of a reanalysis of galactic Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars at infrared (IR) wavelengths, we discuss a sample (357) of carbon stars for which mass loss rates, near-IR photometry and
Chemical Evolution of the Circumstellar Envelopes of Carbon-rich Post-Asymptotic Giant Branch Objects
We have observed, with the 30 m IRAM telescope, the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory telescope, and the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) satellite, 3 the rotational lines of CO at millimeter,
IRAS 08281-4850 and IRAS 14325-6428: two A-type post-AGB stars with s-process enrichment
Aims. One of the puzzling findings in the study of the chemical evolution of (post-)AGB stars is why very similar stars (in terms of metallicity, spectral type, infrared properties, etc.) show a very
The Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment. The OGLE-III Catalog of Variable Stars. V. R Coronae Borealis Stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud
The fifth part of the OGLE-III Catalog of Variable Stars presents 23 R CrB (RCB) stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). 17 of these objects have been spectroscopically confirmed by previous
Dust-enshrouded giants in clusters in the Magellanic Clouds
We present the results of an investigation of post-Main Sequence mass loss from stars in clusters in the Magellanic Clouds, based around an imaging survey in theL � -band (3.8 µm) performed with the
Optical Spectropolarimetry of Asymptotic Giant Branch and Post-Asymptotic Giant Branch Stars
Spectropolarimetric observations are presented for 21 AGB stars, 13 proto-planetary nebulae (PPNs), and two R CrB-type stars. The spectra cover the wavelength range from ~4200 to 8400 A with 16 A
