The Nucleosynthetic Signature of Population III
Growing evidence suggests that the first generation of stars may have been quite massive (~100-300 M?). Could these stars have left a distinct nucleosynthetic signature? We explore the
Core-Collapse Very Massive Stars: Evolution, Explosion, and Nucleosynthesis of Population III 500-1000 M☉ Stars
We calculate evolution, collapse, explosion, and nucleosynthesis of Population III very massive stars with 500 and 1000 M☉. Presupernova evolution is calculated in spherical symmetry. Collapse and
Primordial to extremely metal-poor AGB and Super-AGB stars: White dwarf or supernova progenitors?
Abstract Getting a better understanding of the evolution and nucleosynthetic yields of the most metal-poor stars (Z ≲ 10−5) is critical because they are part of the big picture of the history of the
The formation of protostellar binaries in primordial minihalos
The first stars are known to form in primordial gas, either in minihalos with about $10^6$~M$_\odot$ or so-called atomic cooling halos of about $10^8$~M$_\odot$. Simulations have shown that
Stellar winds and metal enrichment from fast-rotating Population III stars
Stellar winds from fast-rotating Population III (Pop III) stars have long been suspected to make important contributions to early metal enrichment, as features in the nucleosynthesis of such
The Implications of the New Z = 0 Stellar Models and Yields on the Early Metal Pollution of the Intergalactic Medium
Motivated by the recent detection of metals in different components of the high-redshift universe and by the abundance ratios measured in the extremely metal-poor stars of our Galaxy, we study the
Gravitational wave background from Population III binaries
Context. Current star formation models imply that the binary fraction of Population III stars is non-zero. The evolution of these binaries must have led to the formation of compact object binaries.
