The curve of growth for stars in the effective temperature range 4000–8500 K

  • M. Villada
  • L. Rossi


A comparison of different curves of growth derived from available model atmospheres has been done. We found that, in the effective temperature range (4000–8500 K), the differences between models with the same (Teff, logg) from different authors, do not affect the shape of the curve of growth. Moreoyer, the shifts needed to superpose the curves, for different elements, differ only slightly when model from different authors are used. Then, in the low-temperature range and for the gravities we considered, the particular model atmosphere used to draw the curve of growth is not the main constrain of the method.
