Nucleosynthesis in metal-free and metal-poor stars

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


There have been a number of important recent developments in theoretical and observational studies of nucleosyn-thesis, especially regarding nucleosynthetic sources at low metallicities. Those selected for discussion here include the origin of 6Li, the primary production of N, the s-process, and the supernova sources for three groups of metals: (1) C to Zn with mass numbers A<70, (2) Sr to Ag with A∼90-110, and (3) r-process nuclei with A∼130 and above.
