We studied the star formation and chemical evolution in a sample of eight dwarf spheroidal (dSph) galaxies of the Local Group and in blue compact galaxies (BCGs) by means of comparison between the predictions of chemical evolution models and several observed abundance ratios. Detailed models with up-to-date nucleosynthesis taking into account the role played by supernovae of different types (II, Ia) were developed for both types of galaxies, allowing us to follow the evolution of several… 
The predicted metallicity distribution of stars in dwarf spheroidal galaxies
We predict the metallicity distribution of stars and the age-metallicity relation for six dwarf spheroidal (dSph) galaxies of the Local Group by means of a chemical evolution model that is able to
Chemical Enrichment in Galaxies: Constraints on Nucleogenesis and Galaxy Evolution
We will describe the chemical enrichment history in galaxies of different morphological type (spirals, ellipticals, irregulars) as deduced from the abundances and abundance ratios of key chemical
Chemical evolution models for the dwarf spheroidal galaxies Leo 1 and Leo 2
Aims. We investigate the chemical evolutionary history of the dwarf spheroidal galaxies Leo 1 and Leo 2 by means of predictions from a detailed chemical evolution model compared to observations. The
The evolution of barium and europium in local dwarf spheroidal galaxies
By means of a detailed chemical evolution model, we follow the evolution of barium and europium in four Local Group Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxies, in order to set constraints on the nucleosynthesis of
The evolution of the photometric properties of Local Group dwarf spheroidal galaxies
Aims. We investigate the present-day photometric properties of the dwarf spheroidal galaxies in the Local Group. From the analysis of their integrated colours, we consider a possible link between
Chemical Evolution of Blue Compact Galaxies
Based on a sample of 72 Blue Compact Galaxies (BCGs) observed with the 2.16 m telescope of the National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC) and about 4000 strong emission
Chemical evolution of local galaxies in a hierarchical model
We investigate the chemical properties of local galaxies within a cosmological framework in the hierarchical picture of galaxy formation. To this aim, we use a hierarchical semi-analytic model which
The cycle of interstellar dust in galaxies of different morphological types
Aims. We used chemical evolution models for galaxies of different morphological type to perform a detailed study of the evolution of the cosmic dust properties in different environments: the solar
Effects of the galactic winds on the stellar metallicity distribution of dwarf spheroidal galaxies
Aims. To study the effects of galactic winds on the stellar metallicity distributions and on the evolution of Draco and Ursa Minor dwarf spheroidal galaxies (dSphs), we compared the predictions of
Cosmological Implications of Dwarf Spheroidal Chemical Evolution
The chemical properties of dwarf spheroidals in the local group are shown to be inconsistent with star formation being truncated after the reionization epoch (z �8). Enhanced levels of [Ba/Y] in


Chemical evolution models of local dwarf spheroidal galaxies
We calculate chemical evolution models for four dwarf spheroidal (dSph) satellites of the Milky Way (Carina, Ursa Minor, Leo I and Leo II) for which reliable non-parametric star formation histories
Multiple starbursts in Blue Compact Galaxies
In this paper we present some results concerning the eects of two instantaneous starbursts, separated by a quiescent period, on the dynamical and chemical evolution of Blue Compact Dwarf galaxies. In
Dynamical and chemical evolution of gas-rich dwarf galaxies
We study the effect of a single, instantaneous starburst on the dynamical and chemical evolution of a gas-rich dwarf galaxy, the potential well of which is dominated by a dark matter halo. We follow

The aim of this paper is to cast light on the formation and evolution of elliptical galaxies by means of N-body/hydro-dynamical simulations that include star formation, feed-back and chemical

We study the nature of damped Lyman α systems (DLAs) by means of a comparison between the observed abundances and models of chemical evolution of galaxies of different morphological type. In

In an eort to understand the evolution of N, O, and He abundances in gas-rich dwarf galaxies, we investigate the dispersion and mixing of supernova ejecta in relation to H ii region evolution and
The evolution of dwarf galaxies.
We propose an evolutionary model for dwarf galaxies in Which initially metal-poor gas-rich dwarf irregular (dI) galaxies evolve through bursting Blue Compact Dwarf(BCD) stages and eventually fade
Galactic winds and circulation of the interstellar medium in dwarf galaxies
We study, through 2D hydrodynamical simulations, the feedback of a starburst on the ISM of typical gas-rich dwarf galaxies. The main goal is to address the circulation of the ISM and metals following
The role of stellar feedback and dark matter in the evolution of dwarf galaxies
Supernova and multiple supernova events regulate several structural properties of dwarf galaxies. In particular, they govern the metal enrichment and the energy budget of the ISM; they might induce

Dwarf galaxies play an important role in our understanding of galaxy formation and evolution, and starbursts are believed to aUect the structure and evolution of dwarf galaxies strongly. We have
