The VMC survey ⋆ III . Mass-loss rates and luminosities of LMC AGB stars

Abstract

Context. Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars are major contributors to both the chemical enrichment of the interstellar medium and the integrated light of galaxies. Despite its importance, the AGB is one of the least understood phases of stellar evolution. The main difficulties associated with detailed modelling of the AGB are related to the mass-loss… (More)
