• Protoplanetary disks, debris disks, and disrupted or evaporating planets can all feed accretion onto stars. The photospheric abundances of such stars may then reveal the composition of the accreted material. This is especially likely in B to mid-F type stars, which have radiative envelopes and hence less bulk--photosphere mixing. We present a theoretical framework (\texttt{CAM}) considering diffusion, rotation, and other stellar mixing mechanisms, to describe how the accreted material interacts… CONTINUE READING
