We present and discuss new determinations of metallicity, rotation, age, kinematics, and Galactic orbits for a complete, magnitude-limited, and kinematically unbiased sample of 16,682 nearby F and G dwarf stars. Our ∼63,000 new, accurate radial-velocity observations for nearly 13,500 stars allow identification of most of the binary stars in the sample and,(More)
Recent AGB models including diffusive overshoot or rotational effects suggest the partial mixing (PM) of protons from the H-rich envelope into the C-rich layers during the third dredge-up. In order to study the impact of such a mixing on the surface abundances, nucleosynthesis calculations based on stellar AGB models are performed for different assumptions(More)
We present stellar evolutionary models covering the mass range from 0.4 to 1 M ⊙ calculated for metal-licities Z=0.020 and 0.001 with the MHD equation of state (Hummer & Mihalas, 1988; Mihalas et al. 1988; Däppen et al. 1988). A parallel calculation using the OPAL (Rogers et al. 1996) equation of state has been made to demonstrate the adequacy of the MHD(More)
We present new yields of 26 Al from Wolf–Rayet stellar winds based on rotating stellar models which account well for numerous observed properties of massive stars. We study the impacts on the yields of a change of initial mass, metallicity and initial rotation velocity. We also consider the effects of a change of mass loss rates during the Wolf–Rayet phase.(More)
Aims. The Galactic bulge region is a rich host of variable high-energy point sources. Since 2005, February 17 we are monitoring the source activity in the Galactic bulge region regularly and frequently, i.e., about every three days, with the instruments onboard INTEGRAL. Thanks to the large field of view, the imaging capabilities and the sensitivity at hard(More)
We study the spectrum of the cosmic X-ray background (CXB) in energy range ∼5-100 keV. Early in 2006 the INTEGRAL observatory performed a series of four 30ksec observations with the Earth disk crossing the field of view of the instruments. The modulation of the aperture flux due to occultation of extragalactic objects by the Earth disk was used to obtain(More)
Long Period Variable Stars: galactic populations and infrared luminosity calibrations. Abstract. In this paper HIPPARCOS astrometric and kinematic data are used to calibrate both infrared lumi-nosities and kinematical parameters of Long Period Variable stars (LPVs). Individual absolute K and IRAS 12 and 25 luminosities of 800 LPVs are determined and made(More)
Context. At about 1000 days after the launch of Gaia we present the first Gaia data release, Gaia DR1, consisting of astrometry and photometry for over 1 billion sources brighter than magnitude 20.7. Aims. A summary of Gaia DR1 is presented along with illustrations of the scientific quality of the data, followed by a discussion of the limitations due to the(More)
