AGB Newsletter

Red giants and red supergiants, and related phenomena

Official publication of the
IAU Working Group on Red Giants and Supergiants
(Commission G3 Stellar Evolution, Division G Stars)


The AGB Newsletter invites contributions related to Asymptotic Giant Branch stars and less and more luminous red giants and supergiants; dealing with their structure, behaviour, evolution or mass loss, with their impact on the dynamical and chemical evolution of galaxies or their use as tracers of intermediate-age populations. To help understand "AGB" stars (in the widest sense of the word) and their roles in the galactic ecology, we also welcome contributions on all associated phenomena such as post-AGB evolution, Planetary Nebulae, white dwarf mass functions, AGB Manqué stars, relevant nuclear, astrochemical and mineralogical processes, et cetera, as well as contributions on first ascent Red Giant Branch stars and massive red supergiants (and their effects on their subsequent fate) that are similar to AGB stars.

Contributions may include papers submitted or accepted for publication in refereed journals or conference proceedings, thesis abstracts, conference or job announcements, or other scientific communications. You don't need to wait for us to invite you to post something. Please use the Newsletter as a forum for communicating and developing science, using the options below or on the menu bar on the left hand side.

The editors: Jacco van Loon (Keele University, UK), Ambra Nanni (Warsaw, Poland) and Albert Zijlstra (The University of Manchester, UK)
