Interpretation of Isotopic Abundances in Interstellar Clouds

  • Michel Guélin (a1) and James Lequeux (a1)

Extract

The abundances of elements in the interstellar medium (ISM) result from a complex sequence of nucleosynthetic processes which started some ten billion years ago in the Big Bang and are still going on. Their study and in particular their comparison with the stellar and the solar system abundances may give clues to: i) the properties of the early Universe, ii) the evolution of galaxies (rate of star formation, Initial Mass Function of stars, stellar nucleosynthesis and rate of ejection of matter by stars), and iii) the flux of low-energy cosmic rays. (See e.g. Reeves 1974, Audouze and Tinsley 1976).
