We present preliminary results of stellar structure and nucleosynthesis calculations for some early stars. The study (still in progress) seeks to explore the expected chemical signatures of second generation low- and intermediate-mass stars that may have formed out of a combination of Big Bang and Pop III (Z=0) supernovae material. Although the study is incomplete at this stage, we find some important features in our models. The initial chemical composition of these early stars is found to be… Expand
