  • We computed the evolution of the abundances of O, Mg, Si, Ca, K, Ti, Sc, Ni, Mn, Co, Fe and Zn in the Milky Way. We made use of the most widely adopted nucleosynthesis calculations and compared the model results with observational data with the aim of imposing constraints upon stellar yields. To best fit the data in the solar neighborhood, when adopting the Woosley & Weaver (1995, ApJS, 101, 181) yields for massive stars and the Iwamoto et al. (1999, ApJS, 125, 439) ones for type Ia SNe, it is… CONTINUE READING
