  author={Marc H. Pinsonneault and Terry P. Walker and Gary Steigman and Vijay K. Narayanan},
The depletion of lithium during the pre-main sequence and main sequence phases of stellar evolution plays a crucial role in the comparison of the predictions of big bang nucleosynthesis with the abundances observed in halo stars. Previous work has indicated a wide range of possible depletion factors, ranging from minimal in standard (non-rotating) stellar… CONTINUE READING
