The Evolution of Metal Poor Stars

Dr. Brian Chaboyer
Physics and Astronomy Department, Dartmouth College

I will present an overview of the evolution of metal-poor stars, with particular application to globular cluster stars. My talk will focus on the uncertainties in the stellar evolution models and provide an estimate of the error associated with various predictions of stellar evolution theory. I will conclude with a discussion of the absolute ages of globular clusters.
