We calculate nucleosynthesis in core collapse explosions of massive Population III stars and compare the results with abundances of metal-poor halo stars to constrain the parameters of Population III supernovae. We focus on iron peak elements, and, in particular, we try to reproduce the large [Zn/Fe] observed in extremely metal-poor stars. The interesting trends of the observed ratios [Zn, Co, Mn, Cr, V/Fe] can be related to the variation of the relative mass of the complete and incomplete Si… 

Variations in the Abundance Pattern of Extremely Metal-Poor Stars and Nucleosynthesis in Population III Supernovae

We calculate nucleosynthesis in Population III supernovae (SNe) and compare the yields with various abundance patterns of extremely metal-poor (EMP) stars. We assume that the observed EMP stars are

Supernova Nucleosynthesis in Population III 13-50 M☉ Stars and Abundance Patterns of Extremely Metal-poor Stars

We perform hydrodynamic and nucleosynthesis calculations of core-collapse supernovae (SNe) and hypernovae (HNe) of Population (Pop) III stars. We provide new yields for the main-sequence mass of MMS

ABUNDANCE PROFILING OF EXTREMELY METAL-POOR STARS AND SUPERNOVA PROPERTIES IN THE EARLY UNIVERSE

After the big bang nucleosynthesis, the first heavy element enrichment in the universe was made by a supernova (SN) explosion of a population (Pop) III star (Pop III SN). The abundance ratios of

THE ORIGIN OF LOW [α/Fe] RATIOS IN EXTREMELY METAL-POOR STARS

We show that the low ratios of α elements (Mg, Si, and Ca) to Fe recently found for a small fraction of extremely metal-poor stars can be naturally explained with the nucleosynthesis yields of

The explosion energy of early stellar populations: the Fe-peak element ratios in low-metallicity damped Lyα systems

The relative abundances of the Fe-peak elements (Ti–Zn) at the lowest metallicities are intimately linked to the physics of core-collapse supernova explosions. With a sample of 25 very metal poor

FAINT POPULATION III SUPERNOVAE AS THE ORIGIN OF THE MOST IRON-POOR STARS

The most iron-poor stars in the Milky Way provide important observational clues to the astrophysical objects that enriched the primordial gas with heavy elements. Among them, the recently discovered

EXPLOSIVE NUCLEOSYNTHESIS OF WEAK r-PROCESS ELEMENTS IN EXTREMELY METAL-POOR CORE-COLLAPSE SUPERNOVAE

There have been attempts to fit the abundance patterns of extremely metal-poor (EMP) stars with supernova (SN) nucleosynthesis models for the elements lighter than Zn. Observations have revealed the

Nucleosynthesis in Black-Hole-Forming Supernovae

Stars more massive than ∼ 20 − 25 M⨀ form a black hole at the end of their evolution. Stars with non-rotating black holes are likely to collapse “quietly” ejecting a small amount of heavy elements

Nucleosynthesis in Type II Supernovae and the Abundances in Metal-poor Stars

We explore the effects on nucleosynthesis in Type II supernovae of various parameters (mass cut, neutron excess, explosion energy, progenitor mass) in order to explain the observed trends of the

Evolution and Nucleosynthesis of Metal-Free Massive Stars

We calculate presupernova evolutions and supernova explosions of massive stars (M=13-25 Mo) for various metallicities. We find the following characteristic abundance patterns of nucleosynthesis in

We study nucleosynthesis in ‘hypernovae’, i.e., supernovae with very large explosion energies (≳ 1052 ergs) for both spherical and aspherical explosions. The hypernova yields compared to those of

We examine the characteristics of nucleosynthesis in "hypernovae," i.e., supernovae with very large explosion energies (≳1052 ergs). We carry out detailed nucleosynthesis calculations for these

The supernova yields of several heavy elements, including α-, iron-group, and r-process elements, are obtained as a function of the mass of their progenitor main-sequence stars Mms from the abundance

TLDR
It is found that newly formed iron-group elements are distributed throughout the inner half of the helium core by Rayleigh-Taylor instabilities at the (Ni + Si)/O and (C + O)/He interfaces, seeded by convective overturn during the early stages of the explosion.
