Neutron-Capture Elements in the Early Galaxy
The content of neutron-capture (trans-iron-peak) elements in the lowmetallicity Galactic halo varies widely from star to star. The differences are both in bulk amount of the neutron-capture elementsExpand
Nucleosynthesis in asymptotic giant branch stars: Relevance for galactic enrichment and solar system formation
▪ Abstract We present a review of nucleosynthesis in AGB stars outlining the development of theoretical models and their relationship to observations. We focus on the new high resolution codes with...
Nucleosynthesis and Mixing on the Asymptotic Giant Branch. III. Predicted and Observed s-Process Abundances
We present the results of s-process nucleosynthesis calculations for asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars of different metallicities and different initial stellar masses (1.5 and 3 M☉), and we presentExpand
The Chemical Evolution of the Globular Cluster ω Centauri (NGC 5139)
We present abundances for 22 chemical elements in 10 red giant members of the massive Galactic globular cluster ω Centauri. The spectra are of relatively high spectral resolution and signal-to-noise.Expand
GALACTIC EVOLUTION OF Sr, Y, AND Zr: A MULTIPLICITY OF NUCLEOSYNTHETIC PROCESSES
In this paper we follow the Galactic enrichment of three easily observed light n-capture elements: Sr, Y, and Zr. Input stellar yields have been first separated into their respective main and weakExpand
Galactic Chemical Evolution and solar s-process abundances: dependence on the 13C-pocket structure
We study the s-process abundances (A > 90) at the epoch of the solar-system formation. AGB yields are computed with an updated neutron capture network and updated initial solar abundances. We confirmExpand
EVOLUTION AND NUCLEOSYNTHESIS IN LOW-MASS ASYMPTOTIC GIANT BRANCH STARS. II. NEUTRON CAPTURE AND THE s-PROCESS
We present a new analysis of neutron capture occurring in low-mass asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars suffering recurrent thermal pulses. We use dedicated evolutionary models for stars of initialExpand
Evolution, Nucleosynthesis, and Yields of Low-mass Asymptotic Giant Branch Stars at Different Metallicities. II. The FRUITY Database
By using updated stellar low-mass stars models, we systematically investigate the nucleosynthesis processes occurring in asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars. In this paper, we present a databaseExpand
EVOLUTION, NUCLEOSYNTHESIS, AND YIELDS OF LOW-MASS ASYMPTOTIC GIANT BRANCH STARS AT DIFFERENT METALLICITIES
The envelope of thermally pulsing asymptotic giant branch (TP-AGB) stars undergoing periodic third dredge-up (TDU) episodes is enriched in both light and heavy elements, the ashes of a complexExpand
Galactic Chemical Evolution of Heavy Elements: From Barium to Europium
We follow the chemical evolution of the Galaxy for elements from Ba to Eu, using an evolutionary model suitable for reproducing a large set of Galactic (local and nonlocal) and extragalacticExpand
