Abstract The main component of the s process is produced by low mass stars ( 1.5 ⩽ M / M ⊙ ⩽ 3 ) , when they climb for the second time the red giant branch and experience a series of He shell flashes called thermal pulses. During the relatively long period (10 5 yr) that elapses between two subsequent thermal pulses, a slow neutron flux is provided by the 13 C ( α , n ) 16 O reaction taking place within a thin 13 C pocket located in the He-rich and C-rich mantel of these stars. A second… 
EVOLUTION, NUCLEOSYNTHESIS, AND YIELDS OF LOW-MASS ASYMPTOTIC GIANT BRANCH STARS AT DIFFERENT METALLICITIES
The envelope of thermally pulsing asymptotic giant branch (TP-AGB) stars undergoing periodic third dredge-up (TDU) episodes is enriched in both light and heavy elements, the ashes of a complex
The s-Process in Low Metallicity Stars. II. Interpretation of High-Resolution Spectroscopic Observations with AGB models
High-resolution spectroscopic observations of a hundred metal-poor Carbon and s-rich stars (CEMP-s) collected from the literature are compared with the theoretical nucleosynthesis models of
Partial mixing and the formation of 13 C pockets in AGB stars: effects on the s-process elements
The production of the elements heavier than iron via slow neutron captures (the s process) is a main feature of the contribution of asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars of low mass (< 5 Msun) to the
Sensitivity of the s-process nucleosynthesis in AGB stars to the overshoot model
Context. S -process elements are observed at the surface of low- and intermediate-mass stars. These observations can be explained empirically by the so-called partial mixing of protons scenario
s‐Process in low‐metallicity stars – I. Theoretical predictions
A large sample of carbon enhanced metal-poor stars enriched in s-process elements (CEMP-s) have been observed in the Galactic halo. These stars of low mass (M � 0.9 M� ) are located on the
The s process: Nuclear physics, stellar models, and observations
Nucleosynthesis in the $s$ process takes place in the He-burning layers of low-mass asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars and during the He- and C-burning phases of massive stars. The $s$ process
