The physical and chemical properties of circumstellar envelopes

  • 27 Accesses

  • 8 Citations

Abstract

An overview is given of recent results on some basic properties of the circumstellar envelopes of evolved stars. The focus is on well studied examples which illustrate envelopes of different types and at different stages of evolution. The close connection between the physical and chemical properties of the envelopes is emphasized.
