We provide detailed abundance analyses of 8 candidate super-metal-rich stars. Five of them are confirmed to have [Fe/H] > 0.2 dex, the generally-accepted limit for super-metal-richness. Furthermore, we derive abundances of several elements and find that the stars follow trends seen in previous studies of metal-rich stars. Ages are estimated from isochrones and velocities calculated. We find that there do exist very metal-rich stars that are older than 10 Gyr. This is contrary to what is found… Expand
ABUNDANCE PATTERN OF METAL-RICH STARS FROM 14 OLD AND 24 YOUNG STARS
The metallicities and abundance ratios, [X/Fe], of 12 elements—C, Na, Mg, Si, S, Ca, Ti, Cr, Ni, Y, Zr, and Ce—are determined for 14 old and 24 young metal-rich stars based on high resolution, highExpand
Chemical abundances of old metal-rich stars in the solar neighborhood
We report on chemical abundances for 15 old metal-rich stars in the solar neighborhood based on high-resolution, high signal-to-noise ratio observations. It is found that [O/Fe], [S/Fe], and probablyExpand
The solar neighborhood age-metallicity relation - Does it exist?
We test the hypothesis that the spread in the age-metallicity plot of the solar neighborhood is due to a mixture of stars belonging to kinematically different sub-populations of the Galactic disk,Expand
The Old, Super-Metal-Rich Open Cluster, NGC 6791 - Elemental Abundances in Turn-off Stars from Keck/HIRES Spectra
The study of star clusters has advanced our understanding of stellar evolution, Galactic chemical evolution and nucleosynthesis. Here we investigate the composition of turn-off stars in theExpand
Abundances in Turn-off Stars in the Old, Metal-Rich Open Cluster, NGC 6791
Open clusters have long been used to illuminate both stellar evolution and Galactic evolution. The oldest clusters, though rather rare, can reveal the chemical and nucleosynthetic processes early inExpand

The helium abundance and ΔY/ΔZ in lower main-sequence stars
We use nearby K dwarf stars to measure the helium-to-metal enrichment ratio ΔY/ΔZ, a diagnostic of the chemical history of the solar neighbourhood. Our sample of K dwarfs has homogeneously determinedExpand

TLDR
The radial velocity of the star has been monitored with the Advanced Fiber-Optic Echelle spectrograph at the Whipple Observatory since 1996, and evidence has been found for a low-mass companion, and the star's orbital wobble is determined to have a period P=256 days, an orbital amplitude K=257 m s-1, and an eccentricity e=0.7.

Local stellar kinematics from Hipparcos data
TLDR
From the parallaxes and proper motions of a kinematically unbiased subsample of the Hipparcos Catalogue, it is re-determined as a function of colour the kinematics of main-sequence stars that spiral arms are responsible for the non-axisymmetry and that R0/Rd ≃ 3 to 3, where Rd is the scalelength of the disc.
