Special Issue "AGB Stars—In Honor of Professor Maurizio Busso on the Occasion of His 70th Birthday"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (5 December 2021) | Viewed by 31931
We are organizing a special conference (The 13th Torino Workshop on AGB stars) to celebrate Prof. Maurizio Busso in the occasion of his retirement. He has spent his career in investigating these stars, and he is now recognized as one of the leading experts in the sector worldwide.
The workshop will be held in one year (late winter/spring, 2022) and it will be accompanied by the present publication, the purpose of which is to define the state of the art in the field of AGB stars.
AGB stars are among the most important sites of stellar nucleosynthesis and affect the production of s-only nuclei and of elements which are approximately 50% heavier than Fe. We therefore think that this topic will be of great interest to the readership of Universe.
Dr. Sara Palmerini
