Summary:

Hello! I'm attempting to find the mass of a red giant and an AGB star.
Hello! I'm attempting to find the mass of a red giant and an AGB star. I have their luminosities, radii, and the masses of their cores. I'm looking for some kind of mass-luminosity relationship. Do you know of any, or do you know of a good place to look for such equations? Thanks!

Change et al. Astrophys.J. 732 (2011) 25 has radius-density profiles. If you know the core mass, you're just one integral away from all you need.
