    In the LuminosityTe diagram, this is the "red giant branch". During this phase the degenerate Helium core is built up until it ignites to transition to the central helium burning phase (called the "horizontal branch"). (Also some discussion of what B V color is (log of the ux ratio between two spectral ranges, 550nm and 440 nm.)

    Helium fuses to give carbon, and some of this carbon combines with helium to yield oxygen. At the same times as the core of the star becomes rich in carbon and oxygen nuclei, the surface temperature climbs until the star reaches a part of the HR diagram known as the horizontal branch.

    the triple alpha takes helium and makes carbon and oxygen. this occurs in low mass horizontal branch stars in the He burning core. the CNO cycle occurs in higher mass stars and it means that carbon is a catalyst in nuclear fusion, or the fusion of hydrogen into helium. requires a high core temperature.

    Sep 22, 2009· Hot subdwarf stars (sdBs, sdOs) are core heliumburning stars at the blue end of the horizontal branch or have evolved even beyond that stage. They are found in all Galactic stellar populations and are sufficiently common to account for the UVupturn of earlytype galaxies.
