​Assignment: Post-main sequence evolution of massive stars and Cepheid variables

1. Create a set of plots for your MESA simulations of 10 and 20 solar mass stars.

Set up and collect the results of simulations of the structure and evolution of a 1,2,5,10 and 20 solar mass star in MESA(Click to go to the MESA website)

2. Label the following branches on the M15 HR diagram (see the attachemnt below): the Main Sequence, the Sub-Giant Branch, the Red Giant Branch, the Horizontal Branch, and the Asymptotic Giant Branch.

3. Discuss the likely structure of the stars in regions A, B, C and D of the M15 HR diagram (what are their radii? Where is nuclear burning occurring, what is burning and what is the structure of the core?)
