Abstract [en]

In the Sun, low-amplitude small-scale acoustic waves are just detectable in the photosphere and start to become dynamically relevant only in the lower chromosphere. The generation of these waves by non-stationary convective flows can be studied in detail by local 3-D radiation-hydrodynamics simulations. Using this technique for global models of AGB stars reveals roughly similar phenomena but on a larger scale and with much higher amplitude. Convection cells spanning a significant fraction of the entire surface produce strong waves that cause a network of smaller shocks in the inner photosphere and occasional global shocks, travelling outward in large arcs. Material falling back interacts with the surface convection cells. A new generation of 3-D RHD simulations of these layers with CO5BOLD is presented and analyzed with particular attention given to acoustic waves and shock fronts.
