Rotational evolution of intermediate mass stars with OPAL opacities: Mass of the convective core

Kiziloglu, N
Civelek, R
Theoretical evolutionary models for intermediate mass rotating stars were obtained by the use of OPAL opacities to see the effect on the internal structure and primarily on the mass of the convective core. The new ZAMS positions of rotating intermediate mass stars in the HR diagram were found to be above those of rotating stars obtained by using Cox & Stewart opacities. Rotation led to a reduction in the central value of the radiative temperature gradient and hence the masses of convective cores on the ZAMS for rotating intermediate mass stars were found to decrease relative to those of non rotating stars.


Magnetic activity and evolution of Algol-type stars - II
SARNA, MAREK; Yerli, Sinan Kaan; Muslimov, A G (1998-07-01)
We examine the possibility of probing dynamo action in mass-losing stars, components of Algol-type binaries, Our analysis is based on the calculation of nonconservative evolution of these systems, We model the systems U Sge and beta Per where the more massive companion fills its Roche lobe at the main sequence (case AB) and where it has a small helium core (early case B) respectively, We show that to maintain evolution of these systems at the late stages which are presumably driven by stellar 'magnetic brak...
Quantum chemical investigation of thalidomide molecule
Erkoç, Şakir; Erkoc, F (Elsevier BV, 2005-04-14)
The structural and electronic properties of the thalidomide molecule have been investigated theoretically by performing semi-empirical molecular orbital (AM1) and density functional theory calculations. The geometry of the molecule has been optimized by AM1 method and the electronic properties of the molecule have been calculated by density functional theory in its ground state.
Rotational evolution of the Sun
Kızıloğlu, N. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1992-6)
The evolutionary behaviour of rotating solar models with different initial angular-momentum distributions has been investigated through the pre-Main-Sequence and Main-Sequence phases. The angular momentum was removed from the convective envelope of the solar models according to the Kawaler's model of magnetic stellar wind (Kawaler, 1988). The models show that (i) the surface rotational velocities of the solar mass stars are independent of initial angular momentum for ages greater than 10(8) years and (ii) i...
Determining the asymmetry in supernova explosions by studying the radial velocities of OB runaway stars
Dinçel, Baha; Yerli, Sinan Kaan; Ankay, Aşkın; Department of Physics (2012)
Understanding the asymmetry in core collapse supernova explosions is pointed out by various astrophysicists as it is the key factor in determining the observational properties of the pulsars. The initial kick given by the ex- plosion to the pulsar affects its spin period and space velocity. Up to now, although the observations do not show a direct relation between the observational features of the pulsar and its space velocity, they show a clear relation between the spin period and the magnetic field streng...
Charged lepton flavor physics and extra dimensions
Iltan, E. I. (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2007-06-28)
We estimate the charged lepton electric dipole moments and the branching ratios of radiative lepton flavor violating decays in the framework of the two Higgs doublet model with the inclusion of two extra dimensions. Here, we consider that the new Higgs doublet is accessible to one of the extra dimensions with a Gaussian profile and the fermions are accessible to the other extra dimension with uniform zero-mode profile. We observe that the numerical values of the physical quantities studied enhance with the ...
