Radiation-hydrodynamical model atmospheres across the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram

Prof. Hans-G. Ludwig

Abstract

In the EU funded Marie Curie Excellence Team CIFIST (Cosmological Impact of the FIrst STars) work is under way to construct 3D radiation-hydrodynamical model atmospheres for late-type dwarfs and giants, in particular of low metallicity. I will present an overview of the present state of the efforts, discuss some applications of the models, and point to necessary future developments.
