Investigating the metallicity-mixing-length relation.


Abstract (from CDS):

Stellar models typically use the mixing-length approximation as a way to implement convection in a simplified manner. While conventionally the value of the mixing-length parameter, α, used is the solar-calibrated value, many studies have shown that other values of α are needed to properly model stars. This uncertainty in the value of the mixing-length parameter is a major source of error in stellar models and isochrones. Using asteroseismic data, we determine the value of the mixing-length parameter required to properly model a set of about 450 stars ranging in log g, Teff, and [Fe/H]. The relationship between the value of α required and the properties of the star is then investigated. For Eddington atmosphere, non-diffusion models, we find that the value of α can be approximated by a linear model, in the form of α/α=5.426–0.101log(g)-1.071log(Teff)+0.437([Fe/H]). This process is repeated using a variety of model physics, as well as compared with previous studies and results from 3D convective simulations.
