Generation of longitudinal flux tube waves in theoretical main-sequence stars: effects of model parameters.


Abstract (from CDS):

We compute the wave energy fluxes carried by longitudinal tube waves along vertically oriented thin magnetic fluxes tubes embedded in the atmospheres of theoretical main-sequence stars based on stellar parameters deduced by Kurucz and Gray. In addition, we present a fitting formula for the wave energy flux based on the governing stellar and magnetic parameters. A modified theory of turbulence generation based on the mixing-length concept is combined with the magneto-hydrodynamic equations to numerically account for the wave energies generated at the base of magnetic flux tubes. The results indicate a stiff dependence of the generated wave energy on the stellar and magnetic parameters in principal agreement with previous studies. The wave energy flux FLTW decreases by about a factor of 1.7 between G0 V and K0 V stars, but drops by almost two orders of magnitude between K0 V and M0 V stars. In addition, the values for FLTW are significantly higher for lower in-tube magnetic field strengths. Both results are consistent with the findings from previous studies. Our study complements existing descriptions of magnetic energy generation in late-type main-sequence stars. Our results will be helpful for calculating theoretical atmospheric models for stars of different levels of magnetic activity.
