Stellar Evolution Tracks

J.Köppen Strasbourg/Illkirch/Kiel May 2001

The StellarEvolution Applet displays the properties of stars of different masses and for different ages. The screen is organized in a plotting area and some control butttons:
The controls on the top are: The controls on the side are: Clicking on the plotting area will cause the x and y coordinates being displayed above the plot.

These evolutionary tracks are results of computations for spherically symmetric, non-rotating stars by the Geneva group. Note that they do not include the evolution beyond the red giant branch: the ascent up the asymptotic giant branch (AGB), evolution from AGB to white dwarfs, cooling sequence of white dwarfs, and the horizontal branch are not shown here.
