Introduction to Chiral Perturbation Theory
In the interest of being provocative, then, I’ll mention some results for Eta Carinae and a few other massive stars that have been studied in detail, which challenge some familiar ideas developed from the study of PNe.
Eta Carinae and Nebulae Around Massive Stars: Similarities to Planetary Nebulae?
Stars with higher initial mass (like Eta Car and most LBVs) never pass through a RSG phase.
Eta Carinae and Nebulae Around Massive Stars: Similarities to Planetary Nebulae?
In the case of Eta Carinae, though, the difficulties for an interacting winds scenario are compounded further.
Eta Carinae and Nebulae Around Massive Stars: Similarities to Planetary Nebulae?
The mass as a function of latitude has been measured in the bipolar lobes around Eta Car, showing that most of the mass comes from high latitudes near the pole (Smith 2006).
Eta Carinae and Nebulae Around Massive Stars: Similarities to Planetary Nebulae?
I’d like to diverge for a moment to talk about the detailed ionization structure in the walls of the nebula around Eta Car, as opposed to its overal bipolar shape, where additional similarities to some PNe can be seen.
Eta Carinae and Nebulae Around Massive Stars: Similarities to Planetary Nebulae?
Eta Car’s nebula has a distinct double-shell structure, with a thin outer shell composed of molecular gas and cool dust, and a thicker inner shell of partiallyionized atomic gas and warmer dust (Smith 2006; Smith et al. 2003).
