Late Stages of Stellar Evolution : Proceedings of the Workshop Held in Calgary, Canada, from 2–5 June, 1986

Over the last decade we have witnessed a rapid change in our understanding of the late stages of stellar evolution. A major stimulus to this has been the synthesis of observational data from different wavebands of the electromagnetic spectrum. The advent of infrared astronomy has led to the discover...
