Post-AGB evolution of low- and intermediate-mass stars.

Marcelo Miguel Miller Bertolami (Max Planck Institut für Astrophysik)

We present results from an ongoing project aimed at computing grids of models for post-AGB stars and CSPN for different stellar populations. These grids of models are a necessary input for a wide range of studies, e.g. radiation driven wind simulations of PN, determination of the masses of the central stars, to determine the stellar evolution history of a given central star and many more. We will discuss the progress made and compare the results with old sequences and discuss possible consequences.
