The Sun has been known to rotate for more than 4 centuries, and evidence is also available through direct measurements, that almost all stars rotate. In this lecture, I will propose a review of the different physical processes associated to rotation that are expected to impact the evolution of stars. I will describe in detail the way these physical processes are introduced in 1D stellar evolution codes and how their introduction in the modelling has impacted our understanding of the internal structure, nucleosynthesis and global evolution of stars.

    We briefly discuss the influence of mass loss on the internal evolutionary properties of massive stars. In particular we show that the C abundance left by the central He burning depends significantly on the adopted mass loss rate after the H rich mantle has been completely ejected.

    The study of post-AGB stars gives important informations on the s-process inside AGB stars, as the s-enrichment of post-AGB stars is due to an intrinsic process. A sample of thirteen C-and s-rich post-AGB stars were analyzed with AGB nucleosynthetic models at different masses, metallicities and...

    We have begun a new program to improve the treatment of turbulent convection in stars; it features Convection Algorithms Based on Simulations (CABS). We analyze stellar convection with the aid of 3D hydrodynamic simulations, introducing the turbulent cascade into our theoretical analysis. We...

    The Trojan Horse Method has been recently applied to the study of reactions involved in fluorine nucleosynthesis inside AGB stars. Fluorine abundance is important since it allows to constrain mixing models from the comparison of the observed fluorine abundances with the ones predicted by models....

    The results of a study of the AGB phase are presented. Abundances have been determined for Fe, C, O, the light s-process elements, Y and Zr, the heavy s-process elements, La and Nd, and the r-process element, Eu. The expected relationship between enhanced C, increasing C/O ratio and enhanced...

    The full understanding of final stellar evolution phases is a fundamental request to properly investigate the Universe at any temporal and spatial scale. While the theoretical scenarios of H- and He-burning have been deeply investigated in the last 30 years, the modelling of stellar evolution...

    Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars undergo a change in their chemical composition during their evolution. This in turn leads to an alteration of the radiative opacities, especially in the cool layers of the envelope and the atmosphere, where molecules are the dominant opacity sources. A key...

    The number of binary post-AGB stars known in the galaxy is significant, yet their evolutionary status is far from understood. The orbital elements from our radial velocity monitoring program indicate that these objects must have undergone severe binary interaction, when the primary was at giant...

    The PHOENIX spectrograph has been used on Gemini South in order to determine C, N and O abundances for intermediate mass AGB stars in the Magellanic Clouds. Although seven stars were observed, the spectra of three stars were unusable because they were too cool, causing the molecular features to...
