Mass-loss rates of Very Massive Stars
Jorick S. Vink
We discuss the basic physics of hot-star winds and we provide mass-loss rates for (very) massive stars. Whilst the emphasis is on theoretical concepts and line-force modelling, we also discuss the current state of observations and empirical modelling, and we address the issue of wind clumping.
