Metal-poor Field Blue Stragglers: More Evidence for Mass Transfer


We report radial velocity studies of five candidate metal-poor field blue stragglers, all known to be deficient in lithium. Four of the five stars are single-lined spectroscopic binaries, with periods ranging from 302 to 840 days, and low orbital eccentricities, in agreement with similar behavior found for other blue straggler candidates by Preston & Sneden… (More)
