The main astrophysical factories of fluorine ( 19 F) are thought to be Type II supernovae, Wolf‐ Rayet stars, and the asymptotic giant branch (AGB) of intermediate-mass stars. We present a model for the chemical evolution of fluorine in the Milky Way using a semi-analytic multizone chemical evolution model. For the first time, we demonstrate quantitatively the impact of fluorine nucleosynthesis in Wolf‐Rayet and AGB stars. The inclusion of these latter two fluorine production sites provides a…

Context. Possible main formation sites of fluorine in the Universe include asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars, the v-process in Type II supernova, and/or Wolf-Rayet stars. The importance of the
EVOLUTION OF FLUORINE IN THE GALAXY WITH THE ν-PROCESS
We calculate the evolution of fluorine in the solar neighborhood with the ν-process of core-collapse supernovae, the results of which are in good agreement with the observations of field stars. The
FLUORINE ABUNDANCES IN GALACTIC ASYMPTOTIC GIANT BRANCH STARS
An analysis of the fluorine abundance in Galactic asymptotic giant branch (AGB) carbon stars (24 N-type, 5 SC-type, and 5 J-type) is presented. This study uses the state-of-the-art carbon-rich
FLUORINE IN THE SOLAR NEIGHBORHOOD: IS IT ALL PRODUCED IN ASYMPTOTIC GIANT BRANCH STARS?
The origin of “cosmic” fluorine is uncertain, but there are three proposed production sites/mechanisms for the origin: asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars, ν nucleosynthesis in Type II supernovae,
Fluorine in the solar neighbourhood: modelling the Galactic thick and thin discs
We investigate the evolution of the abundance of fluorine in the Milky Way thick and thin discs by means of detailed chemical evolution models compared with recent observational data. The chemical
FLUORINE IN THE SOLAR NEIGHBORHOOD: NO EVIDENCE FOR THE NEUTRINO PROCESS
Asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars are known to produce “cosmic” fluorine, but it is uncertain whether these stars are the main producers of fluorine in the solar neighborhood or if any of the other
THE FIRST FLUORINE ABUNDANCE DETERMINATIONS IN EXTRAGALACTIC ASYMPTOTIC GIANT BRANCH CARBON STARS
Fluorine (19F) abundances (or upper limits) are derived in six extragalactic asymptotic giant branch (AGB) carbon stars from the HF(1–0) R9 line at 2.3358 μm in high-resolution spectra. The stars
Fluorine Abundances in the Milky Way Bulge
Fluorine (19F) abundances are derived in a sample of six bulge red giants in Baade’s window. These giants span a factor of 10 in metallicity, and this is the first study to define the behavior of 19F
Fluorine abundances in dwarf stars of the solar neighbourhood
Aims. In spite of many observational efforts aiming to characterize the chemical evolution of our Galaxy, not much is known about the origin of fluorine (F). Models suggest that the F found in t he
Fluorine in the solar neighborhood : Chemical evolution models
Context. In light of new observational data related to fluorine abundances in solar neighborhood stars, we present chemical evolution models testing various fluorine nucleosynthesis prescriptions

We reexamine closely the solar photospheric line at 6300 Å, which is attributed to a forbidden line of neutral oxygen and is widely used in analyses of other late-type stars. We use a

We present theoretical models of Wolf-Rayet (WR) stars for two different sets of mass-loss rates. We compare with observed properties of WR stars and discuss implications for the enrichment of the
