Stothers, R., and C.-W. Chin, 1973: Thermal instability of the helium-burning shell in massive stars. Astrophys. J., 182, 209-214, doi:10.1086/152131.

Nonlinear numerical calculations of stellar evolution at high mass show that thermal instability develops temporarily in the helium-burning shell, shortly after the ignition of shell helium. Manifestation of the instability is an irregular "flickering" of very small amplitude. There appear to be no observale consequences of the phenomenon.
