Pagel nucleosynthesis and chemical evolution of galaxies

This project is just starting, so stay tuned. In addition, some elements are secondary, which means that some element must previously exist in order for the secondary element to be created. These signatures show that environment plays an important role in chemical evolution and that supernovae come in many flavors with a range of element yields.

Neutron capture processes; 7. So-called early-type galaxies according to this classification are the ellipticals, which are spheroidal systems consisting of old stars and relatively little gas or dust detectable at optical, infra-red or radio wavelengths; they do, however, contain substantial amounts of very hot X-ray emitting gas.

Compare red edge of subgiant branch to this isochrone. This is observed Fig Plausibly, this gas would flow into a disk and form disk stars. These may represent primitive galactic halos tenuous ellipsoidal outer extensions of disk galaxiesdisks or building blocks thereof.

Concern over starspot cycles. Within the error bars, the trends of the abundance ratios with metallicity are consistent with those found in earlier literature, but in many cases the scatter around the average trends is much smaller than found in earlier studies, which were limited to lower-quality spectra.

A relation with the correct trend is observed in a sample of irregular and blue compact galaxies Fig 13but the derived yield is much lower than predicted from stellar evolution; this may arise from lower yields at low metallicity or from preferential mass loss of processed material e.

Some possible strategies for testing our predictions are discussed. This era marks the formation of the galactic halo and the thick disk. The result of all these processes is that the Sun was born 4.

For example, they let us know which features and sections are most popular. It is assumed that white dwarfs, SN I, and SN II represent the deaths of stars in the mutually exclusive mass ranges below 4 solar masses, from 4 to 6.

It agrees with observed energies, spectra and light curves, but not observed nucleosynthesis products and it underestimates intermediate-mass element ejecta velocities.

These abundances with perhaps a slightly lower value of Z are also characteristic of the local ISM and young stars. The two inserted images are examples of observed explosive nucleosynthesis.

Metallicity

The absolute ages inferred from a CMD are uncertain, but relative ages between two different galaxies are better constrained. Massive stars supply the ISM with radiation, mass, kinetic energy and chemical enrichment.

"The development of the field (of galactic chemical evolution) in the past two decades is impressive, Matteucci herself having made significant contributions. From Pagel's Nucleosynthesis and Chemical Evolution of Galaxies.

Another version of the chart of the nuclides, from Sneden & Cowan (, Science, 70). At a given proton (atomic) number, isotopes toward the left are proton rich, and those to the right are the neutron-rich ones that are the subject of this article.
