Runaway Growth of Fractal Dust Grains
2015 (English)In: WHY GALAXIES CARE ABOUT AGB STARS III: A CLOSER LOOK IN SPACE AND TIME, ASTRONOMICAL SOC PACIFIC , 2015, Vol. 497, 393-394 p.Conference paper (Refereed)Text
Fractal grains have a large surface area, which leads to more efficient condensation. The special limiting case where the volume-area ratio is constant (corresponding to, e.g., a very rough grain surface or non-compact aggregates) is particularly interesting, as well as convenient, from a mathematical point of view. If dust grains from AGB stars have 'rough surfaces,' that may have important implications for our understanding of dust and wind formation in AGB stars.
