Variable and non-spherical stellar winds in luminous hot stars : proceedings of the IAU Colloquium no. 169, held in Heidelberg, Germany, 15-19 June 1998 by International Astronomical Union( Book )

There is abundant evidence that essentially all luminous hot-star winds contain time-dependent and anisotropic structures. IAU Colloquium 169 was convened to review the observations of variability and asphericity, to discuss the physical processes that might cause such behavior and to look for evolutionary consequences. The topics included OBA stars, Be stars, Wolf-Rayet stars, Be stars, and luminous blue variables (LBVs). The role played by rotation in shaping the stellar wind was a recurrent theme. Photospheric pulsations and/or magnetic fields are particularly appealing mechanisms for triggering the formation of recurrent wind structures
Cyclical variability in stellar winds : proceedings of the ESO Workshop held at Garching, Germany, 14-17 October 1997 by European Southern Observatory( Book )

It is well known that stellar winds are variable. Recent investigations show that the observed fluctuations are often cyclical in nature. This property seems to be shared by the winds of cool and hot stars, even though the physical mechanisms driving these winds are fundamentally different. The time was ripe for astrophysicists studying different types of stars, but applying very similar models, to present the state of the art in a concise form. The proceedings will provide a useful, up-to-date overview of the observations, interpretation, and modelling of the time-dependent mass outflows from a wide variety of stars, including young, pre-main-sequence objects, solar-type stars, red supergiants, and hot, massive stars

Instability and variability of hot-star winds : proceedings of an international workshop held at Isle-Aux-Coudres, Quebec Province, Canada, August 23-27, 1993 by A. F. J Moffat( )

These proceedings of a workshop held at Isle-aux-Coudres, Quebec, Canada in August 1993, provide a comprehensive, up-to- date assessment of a fundamental subject in modern stellar astrophysics. Hot, luminous stars play a crucial role in the rapid recycling of matter in dense regions of the Universe. The most luminous objects generate the strongest outflows of material, which in turn have a profound impact on both the interstellar medium and the underlying stars themselves. However, recent observational and theoretical advances have shown that these outflows are highly unstable and inhomogeneous. These characteristics constitute a fundamental property of the outflows that can no longer be disregarded. <br/> Instability and Variability of Hot-Star Winds provides an in-depth assessment of this important phenomenon from both an observational and a theoretical perspective. It includes up-to- date discussions of the observational diagnostics of time- dependent stellar-wind structure, the theoretical understanding of the origin of such structures, and its consequences for the process of mass loss via stellar winds. The book presents some 40 invited papers, each followed by in-depth discussions which occupied nearly half of the workshop schedule. A round-table discussion summarizes the current state of affairs. This book is suitable for researchers and graduate students studying the radiation hydrodynamics of hot-star winds and related areas of research (e.g. astrophysical flows, turbulence). <br/>
