Discussion D: Observational problems with Li, Be and B

  • Poul Erik Nissen (a1)

Abstract

In Discussion D the following problems were addressed: Has 6Li really been detected in the atmospheres of metal-poor halo stars? Is there a downward trend or increased scatter of Li abundances in stars on the ‘Li-plateau’ at metallicities [Fe/H] ≲ −2.5? Are there significant differences of Li abundances in main-sequence, turn-off, and sub-giant stars in globular clusters? Is the Li abundance in solar-type stars related to the presence of planets? How does the Be abundance in dwarf stars increase with the heavy-element abundance, and is there a cosmic scatter in Be at a given [Fe/H]? The discussion of these problems is summarized and some suggestions for future observational and theoretical studies are mentioned.
