Abstract

Full stellar evolution calculations are computer-time-consuming, especially when they reach the AGB phase, reflecting the complexity of the inner structure of AGB stars and of the temporal evolution due to thermal pulses (see Chapter 2). Therefore, if one is interested in distribution functions (for example, the luminosity function of AGB stars in a galaxy, or the fraction of AGB stars in a galaxy that are obscured by dust, or population synthesis in general), this is hardly achievable from calculating and integrating over a set of tens to hundreds of full stellar evolutionary models. In addition, full stellar models depend critically on a number of uncertain parameters, like mass loss, mixing length, and convective dredge-up of nucleosynthesis products. Clearly, it is computationally prohibitive to calculate a grid of stellar evolution models (including the AGB phase) sufficiently spaced in mass, and for different choices of initial metallicities, mass loss, and other parameters.
