Abstract: The dust formed in extended circumstellar envelopes of long-period variables and Miras has a strong influence on the envelope dynamics. A radiatively driven instability caused by the formation of dust leads to the development of autonomous dynamics characterised by a set of distinct frequencies. We study the interplay between the envelope's internal dynamics and an external excitation by a pulsating star.
