Stellar properties of Galactic Centre He I sources

Extract

The Galactic Centre (GC) region has in recent years attracted a lot of attention from the hot star community following the discovery of numerous He I emission line sources (Krabbe et al. 1991). Recent studies (e.g., Najarro et al. 1994) revealed stellar properties reminiscent of cool Wolf-Rayet stars, providing clues to the origin of the Lyman and He+ ionizing fluxes, and the luminosity in the central parsec of our galaxy. They allow the recent star formation history to be unveiled, and assess the effect of high metallicity on massive star evolution.
