A better understanding of their physical properties touches on galactic chemical evolution, the dynamics of the galaxy, stellar atmospheres, molecular astrophysics, star formation, planet formation, and exoplanet characterization. We will advance our understanding by uniting the best physical models of stellar interiors and atmospheres and testing them with high-quality observations. PROGRAM_ABSTRACT_END
