Spectral Analysis of Central Stars of PNe Interacting with the Interstellar Medium

Abstract

Planetary Nebulae (PNe) are the result of heavy mass loss of the asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars. They are understood in terms of Kwok's (1978) interacting-winds model as the product of the mass-loss history on the AGB and the central star (CS) evolution. Since the CS are close to the end of nuclear burning and at their hottest stage of evolution then… (More)
