Prompt Iron Enrichment, Two r-Process Components, and Abundances in Very Metal-Poor Stars.

Abstract

We present a model to explain the wide range of abundances for heavy r-process elements (mass number A>130) at low [Fe/H]. This model requires rapid star formation and/or an initial population of supermassive stars in the earliest condensed clots of matter in order to provide a prompt or initial Fe inventory. Subsequent Fe and r-process enrichment was… (More)
