Parameters and abundances for 1133 stars of spectral types F, G, and K of luminosity class III have been derived. In terms of stellar parameters, the primary point of interest is the disagreement between gravities derived with masses determined from isochrones, and gravities determined from an ionization balance. This is not a new result per se; but the size of this sample emphasizes the severity of the problem. A variety of arguments lead to the selection of the ionization balance gravity as… 
ABUNDANCES IN THE LOCAL REGION. II. F, G, AND K DWARFS AND SUBGIANTS
Parameters and abundances for 1002 stars of spectral types F, G, and K of luminosity class IV and V have been derived. After culling the sample for rotational velocity and effective temperature, 867
Abundances in the Local Region. III. Southern F, G, and K Dwarfs
Stellar parameters and abundances have been derived from a sample of 907 F, G, and K dwarfs. The highresolution, high signal-to-noise spectra utilized were acquired with the HARPS spectrograph of the
Red giant masses and ages derived from carbon and nitrogen abundances

Rubidium abundances in solar metallicity stars
Context. Rubidium is one of the few elements produced by the neutron capture sand r-processes almost in equally proportions. Recently, a Rb deficiency ([Rb/Fe] < 0.0) by a factor of about two with
The AMBRE Project: Origin and evolution of sulfur in the Milky Way
Context. Sulfur is a volatile chemical element that plays an important role in tracing the chemical evolution of the Milky Way and external galaxies. However, its nucleosynthesis origin and abundance
A Catalog of Stellar Unified Properties (CATSUP) for 951 FGK-Stars Within 30 pc
Almost every star in our Galaxy is likely to harbor a terrestrial planet, but accurate measurements of an exoplanet's mass and radius demands accurate knowledge of the properties of its host star.

The mass (M) of a star can be evaluated from its spectroscopically determined effective temperature (Teff) and metallicity ([Fe/H]) along with the luminosity (L; derived from parallax), while
Sulfur and zinc abundances of red giant stars
Sulfur and zinc are chemically volatile elements, which play significant roles as depletion-free tracers in studying galactic chemical evolution. However, regarding red giants having evolved off the
