Review of abundances for mid-Teff range stars

  • P.E. Nissen (a1)

Extract

Among the mid-T eff (5000–7000 K) range stars, those on or near the main sequence are particularly important, because they provide much information on Galactic evolution and nucleosynthesis of the elements. This is due to the fact that these stars represent an age range from 0 to 15 Gyr, and a metallicity range from [Fe/H] ⋍ −4.0 to +0.3. Furthermore, it is likely that the present composition of elements in their atmospheres is similar to the composition of the interstellar gas from which they were formed, and that the present kinematics of the stars give information about their birthplaces. Hence, by observing selected samples of nearby F and G main sequence and subgiant stars one has the possibility to study the chemical and dynamical history of our Galaxy. Due to space limitation the present review is limited to these F and G stars. Supergiants are not discussed, but it should be emphasized, that their abundances are important for studies of advanced stellar evolutionary phases and determinations of the chemical composition of nearby galaxies. e.g. the Magellanic Clouds (Hill et al. 1995).
