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 = 13-50 M☉ and the explosion energy of E = (1–40) × 1051 ergs to apply to chemical evolution studies. Our HN yields based on the mixing-fallback model of explosions reproduce the observed abundance patterns of extremely metal-poor (EMP) stars (-4 < [Fe/H] < -3), while those of very metal-poor (VMP… 

Supernova Nucleosynthesis in the early universe

Abstract The first metal enrichment in the universe was made by supernova (SN) explosions of population (Pop) III stars. The history of chemical evolution is recorded in abundance patterns of

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

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

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

NUCLEOSYNTHESIS IN HIGH-ENTROPY HOT BUBBLES OF SUPERNOVAE AND ABUNDANCE PATTERNS OF EXTREMELY METAL-POOR STARS

There have been suggestions that the abundance of extremely metal-poor (EMP) stars can be reproduced by hypernovae (HNe), not by normal supernovae (SNe). However, recently it was also suggested that

The Initial Mass Function of the First Stars Inferred from Extremely Metal-poor Stars

We compare the elemental abundance patterns of ∼200 extremely metal-poor (EMP; [Fe/H] < −3) stars to the supernova yields of metal-free stars, in order to obtain insights into the characteristic

NUCLEOSYNTHESIS AND EVOLUTION OF MASSIVE METAL-FREE STARS

The evolution and explosion of metal-free stars with masses 10–100 M☉ are followed, and their nucleosynthetic yields, light curves, and remnant masses determined. Such stars would have been the first

NUCLEOSYNTHESIS IN ELECTRON CAPTURE SUPERNOVAE OF ASYMPTOTIC GIANT BRANCH STARS

We examine nucleosynthesis in the electron capture supernovae of progenitor asymptotic giant branch stars with an O–Ne–Mg core (with the initial stellar mass of 8.8 M☉). Thermodynamic trajectories

THE NUCLEOSYNTHETIC IMPRINT OF 15–40 M☉ PRIMORDIAL SUPERNOVAE ON METAL-POOR STARS

The inclusion of rotationally induced mixing in stellar evolution can alter the structure and composition of pre-supernova stars. We survey the effects of progenitor rotation on nucleosynthetic

ν-Process Nucleosynthesis in Population III Core-Collapse Supernovae

We investigate the effects of neutrino-nucleus interactions (the ν-process) on the production of iron-peak elements in Population III core-collapse supernovae. The ν-process and the following proton
