Journal Article
den Hartogh, J., Hirschi, R., Lugaro, M., Doherty, C., Battino, U., Herwig, F., …Eggenberger, P. (2019). The s process in rotating low-mass AGB stars. Nucleosynthesis calculations in models matching asteroseismic constraints. Astronomy and Astrophysics,

Aims. We investigate the s-process during the AGB phase of stellar models whose cores are enforced to rotate at rates consistent with asteroseismology observations of their progenitors and successors. Methods. We calculated new 2M⊙, Z=0.01 models, ro... Read More about The s process in rotating low-mass AGB stars. Nucleosynthesis calculations in models matching asteroseismic constraints.
