We investigate the distribution of metals in the cosmological volume at $z$ ∼ 3, in particular, provided by massive Population III (Pop III) stars using a cosmological N-body simulation in which a model of Pop III star formation is implemented. Owing to the simulation, we can choose minihaloes where Pop III star formation occurs at $z$ > 10 and obtain the spatial distribution of the metals at lower redshifts. To evaluate the amount of heavy elements provided by Pop III stars, we consider…

When did Population III star formation end?
We construct a theoretical framework to study Population III (Pop III) star formation in the post-reionization epoch ($z\lesssim 6$) by combining cosmological simulation data with semi-analytical

First stars V - Abundance patterns from C to Zn and supernova yields in the early Galaxy
In the framework of the ESO Large Programme "First Stars", very high-quality spectra of some 70 very metal-poor dwarfs and giants were obtained with the ESO VLT and UVES spectrograph. These stars are
Where are the low mass Pop III stars
We study the number and the distribution of low mass Pop III stars in the Milky Way. In our numerical model, hierarchical formation of dark matter minihalos and Milky Way sized halos are followed by
Metal-poor star formation triggered by the feedback effects from Pop III stars
Metal enrichment by the first-generation (Pop III) stars is the very first step of the matter cycle in the structure formation and it is followed by the formation of extremely metal-poor (EMP) stars.
Baseline metal enrichment from Population III star formation in cosmological volume simulations
We utilize the hydrodynamic and N-body code {\small GIZMO} coupled with our newly developed sub-grid Population~III (Pop~III) Legacy model, designed specifically for cosmological volume simulations,
The Birth of a Galaxy: Primordial Metal Enrichment and Stellar Populations
By definition, Population III stars are metal-free, and their protostellar collapse is driven by molecular hydrogen cooling in the gas phase, leading to large characteristic masses. Population II
Early Metal Enrichment of the Intergalactic Medium by Pregalactic Outflows
We assess supernova-driven pregalactic outflows as a mechanism for distributing the product of stellar nucleosynthesis over large cosmological volumes prior to the reionization epoch. Supernova (SN)
Extremely Metal-Poor Stars. II. Elemental Abundances and the Early Chemical Enrichment of The Galaxy*
We have obtained high-resolution spectra of 23 very metal-poor stars and present an abundance analysis for 19 of these for elements between Mg and Eu. The sample comprises roughly equal numbers of
Nucleosynthesis and Evolution of Massive Metal-Free Stars
The evolution and explosion of metal-free stars with masses 10-100 M ? are followed, and their nucleosynthetic yields, light curves, and remnant masses determined. Such stars would have been the
Early Metal Enrichment by Pregalactic Outflows. II. Three-dimensional Simulations of Blow-Away
Supernova (SN)-driven pregalactic outflows may be an efficient mechanism for distributing the product of stellar nucleosynthesis over large cosmological volumes prior to the reionization epoch. Here,
The First Stars: Mass Growth Under Protostellar Feedback
We perform three-dimensional cosmological simulations to examine the growth of metal-free, Population III (Pop III) stars under radiative feedback. We begin our simulation at z = 100 and trace the
