We can imagine, at least, that the study of Luminous Blue Variable stars began as the official court astrophysicists of Eridu speculated about a new years ago first-magnitude star which persisted in their southern sky for several years.2 After that the topic languished for a while, but now it has been renewed following recent observations.

Luminous blue variables show luminosity variations with erent time-scales from days to decades (van Genderen ). LBVs that show S Dor phase are fast rotators with velocities reaching the critical regime in their minimum phase (Groh et al. ) and according to theoretical models, it is possible that they.

He describes them as being non-Wolf-Rayet his talk, he united the other known types of S Doradus, Hubble Sandage Variable and P Cygni. LBV for short, were thought to be between Main Sequence and Wolf-Rayet stages.

“The luminous blue variable is a supermassive, unstable star,” said Yan-Fei Jiang, a researcher at UC Santa Barbara’s Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP). Unlike our own comparatively smaller and steady-burning Sun, he explained, LBVs have been shown to burn bright and hot, then cool and fade so as to be almost.

Luminous Blue Variable stars (LBVs) are among the most luminous hot stars in galaxies. They show very irregular and unpredictable brightness variations.

The typical Luminous blue variables book of the variations is of the order of a few years and the visual brightness of the star can vary by about a magnitude.

Luminous Blue Variables are massive evolved stars, here we introduce this outstanding class of objects. Described are the specific characteristics, the evolutionary state and what they are connected to other phases and types of massive stars. Our current knowledge of LBVs is limited by the fact that in comparison to other stellar classes and phases only a few ``true'' LBVs are known.

This. The topics included OBA stars, Be stars, Wolf-Rayet stars, Be stars, and luminous blue variables (LBVs). The role played by rotation in shaping the stellar wind was a recurrent theme. Photospheric pulsations and/or magnetic fields are particularly appealing mechanisms for triggering the formation of recurrent wind structures.

Abstract. We present multi-epoch, multicolour pre-outburst photometry and post-outburst light curves and spectra of the luminous blue variable (LBV) outburst Ga. It shares some common properties with the so-called Luminous Blue Variables.

However, P Cygni is a unique object. This review deals with P Cygni's photometric properties, its circumstellar environment - including infrared and radio observations - and its optical and ultraviolet spectrum. Get this from a library.

1 INTRODUCTION. Luminous blue variables (LBVs) are the brightest blue irregular variable stars in any large star-forming galaxy.

They can achieve the highest mass-loss rates of any known types of stars, and they exhibit a wide diversity of irregular and eruptive variability (Conti ; Humphreys & Davidson ; van Genderen ; Smith, Vink & de Koter ; Clark, Larioniv & Arkharov a.

Luminous Blue Variables, Cool Hypergiants, and Supernova Impostors: The Role of Episodic Mass Loss. Luminous Blue Variables are massive evolved stars, here we introduce this outstanding class of objects. Described are the specific characteristics, the evolutionary state and what they are connected to other phases and types of massive stars.

Our current knowledge of LBVs is limited by the fact that in comparison to other stellar classes and phases only a few “true” LBVs are known. We present the first systematic spectropolarimetric study of Luminous Blue Variables (LBVs) in the Galaxy and the Magellanic Clouds, in order to investigate the geometries of their winds.

We find that at least half of our sample show changes in polarization across the strong Hα emission line, indicating that the light from the stars is intrinsically polarized and therefore that asphericity.

The diverse collection of objects known collectively as LBVs was first proposed by Conti [], and the standard interpretation of these stars and their role in evolution was established through the s and s (e.g.

[]).The central idea that emerged is that LBVs are massive single stars in a transitional phase between the main sequence. Get this from a library. Physics of Luminous Blue Variables: Proceedings of the th Colloquium of the International Astronomical Union, Held at Val Morin, Quebec Province, Canada, August[Kris Davidson; A F J Moffat; H J G L M Lamers] -- A strange field of speculation is opened by this phenomenon here we have a star fitfully variable to an astonishing extent.

and whose. Luminous blue variables (LBVs) had long been considered massive stars in transition to the Wolf-Rayet (WR) phase, so their identification as progenitors of some peculiar supernovae (SNe) was surprising.

More recently, environment statistics of LBVs show that most of them cannot be in transition to t. These evolved hot stars are called Luminous Blue Variables (LBV's), and their instability may shape the appearance of the upper HR diagram.

LBV eruptions are interestingly reminiscent of geysers, or even volcanos. They have received considerable observational attention sincebut theoretical work to explain the instability has been scarce. Luminous Blue Variables (LBVs) are the most luminous variable blue stars, showing moderate ( mag) light changes on timescales of decades apparently at constant bolometric luminosity.

LBVs are considered to be at an intermediate stage between massive O stars and W-R stars in which the outer layers are removed by extreme mass-loss.

"Hypergiants should not be confused with luminous blue variables. A hypergiant is classified as such because of its size and mass loss rate, whereas a luminous blue variable is thought to be a massive blue supergiant going through an evolutionary phase where it loses a large amount of mass.".

()—A new study based on the first Gaia data release (DR1) reveals more accurate measurements of the distance of four canonical luminous blue variables. Luminous Blue Variables (LBVs) are the most unstable single stars, apart from Supernovae. They are photometrically vari-able on all time scales from weeks to decades.

During "typical LBV variations" the radius of the star increases for a few years by about a factor 4 to 8 from about 30 to R. Russian astronomers have identified three new luminous blue variable (LBV) candidates in the star-forming galaxy NGC While one of the.

Luminous blue variables (LBVs) are massive evolved stars. They show unpredictable and sometimes dramatic variations in their spectra and their brightness.

These unstable supergiants or hypergiants are also known as S Doradus variables. S Doradus is one of the brightest stars of the Large Magellanic Cloud. LBVs are extraordinarily rare with just 20 listed in the General Catalogue of Variable.

luminous blue variables (LBVs) A class of very massive luminous blue stars known for sporadic mass ejections (eruptions); subclasses include P Cygni stars and Hubble–Sandage are generally found near the upper luminosity limit in the observed Hertzsprung–Russell diagram, and most are thought to have evolved from stars with initial masses exceeding 40 solar masses.

Both received a supernova designation. SNkg's eruption was sub-luminous and it was quickly reognized as a non-supernova. It was identified with the "irregular blue variable" V37 in NGC [], a known LBV/S Dor variable in its maximum light stage [,]. Luminous blue variables such as P Cygni are believed to represent a short-lived (about ,year) phase in the life of every massive star.

P Cygni Unmasked An astronomer at the University of Minnesota, KRIS DAVIDSON studies the most massive stars, particularly luminous blue variables. Luminous blue variables (LBVs) are a class of highly unstable stars that have been proposed to play a critical role in massive stellar evolution as well as being the progenitors of some of the most luminous supernovae known.

However the physical processes underlying their characteristic instabilities are curren tly unknown. In order to provide observational constraints on this behaviour we.Luminous Blue Variable (LBV) Stars are very massive, hot supergiants. They are unstable and variable, with irregular mass ejections.

A mass loss episode increases the brightness. A cool (K) shell forms around the star, with optical spectra showing an A-type supergiant with shell.We discuss an interesting feature of the distribution of luminous blue variables (LBVs) on the H-R diagram, and we propose a connection with the bistability jump seen in the winds of early-type supergiants.
