Fig. 19


Mean core (dashed lines) and envelope (dotted lines) rotation rate during the evolution of YREC models (from the TAMS to the RGB) with various masses (colour coded) assuming local conservation of angular momentum and rigid rotation on the main sequence. The rotation rate and stellar radius are given relative their respective values on the TAMS. The filled symbols correspond to the relative envelope rotation rates of various stars with a given mass and radius. The core rotation rate (open symbols) is determined from this value and the oberved core-to-envelope rotation gradient.
