- Convection undoubtedly plays a strong role in defining the RR Lyrae instability strip, but its effects on amplitude, mode of pulsation, and light curve have always been problematical. One reason is simple that convective models are difficult to compute, and their accuracy is difficult to ascertain. We present results of a new convective survey of RR Lyrae stars that constitute the best models available at this time, with better boundary conditions, physics, zoning, and length of computational run than previous results.
