Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 274)


Results of convectioe, nonlinear RR Lyrae models are presented. The standard mixing length theory has been used with time dependence being introduced through the convective velocity phase lag technique. Turbulent pressure and turbulent viscosity are also included.Results are compared with those of other time dependent convection theories.
