Star clusters by Bruce W Carney ( Book )
13 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This text contains two surveys. One concerns knowledge of the relative and absolute ages of globular clusters and probes of the galaxy's chronology. The other is on globular cluster systems as subpopulations of one galaxy's stars

Primordial Nucleosynthesis Proceedings by W J Thompson ( )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This workshop was one of the first meetings where cosmologists, astronomers, astrophysicists, and nuclear physicists discussed research areas of mutual interest. Very new results on inhomogeneous models and neutron-proton segregation were presented, and related to primordial abundances. The current rapid progress in measuring nuclear reaction rates for radioactive nuclei was summarized, together with prospects for developing relevant facilities for nuclear astrophysics and low-energy nuclear physics. Contents: Primordial Nucleosynthesis: The Next Significant Figure (G Steigman); Inhomogeneous

Chemical tagging of solar neighborhood kinematic streams by Christopher Bayard Stringer ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Elemental abundance measurements for lanthanum, europium, and iron are presented for 504 stars in the solar neighborhood. The bulk of the data are planet search spectra taken with HIRES on the Keck I telescope at R=50,000, but a subset of 45 kinematically selected stars were observed on the Harlan J. Smith Telescope at McDonald Observatory at R=60,000 and S/N=100 at the 3988 angstrom lanthanum line and S/N=250 around 5240 angstrom near the iron lines. Statistical analyses of stellar kinematics in the solar neighborhood reveal much kinematic substructure in the disk, though it is not readily apparent whether this substructure is extragalactic or dynamical in origin. Much of the substructure can be quickly identified as well known moving groups of stars such as the Hercules, Sirius, and Hyades stellar streams. Additionally, the subset of kinematically selected stars observed at McDonald Observatory are members of a stellar stream putatively identified by Amina Helmi as part of a merger remnant. Taking advantage of a large data set and a homogeneous spectral analysis, a Kolmogorov-Smirnov hypothesis test is applied to investigate the possibility that these kinematic structures are chemically distinct from the Galactic Disk. In all cases, the kinematic streams have chemistries roughly consistent with the Galactic disk trends, although the statistical analyses suggest some subtle variations. The accretion hypothesis is not completely ruled out for Helmi's stream, but the chemical variations are interpreted primarily in terms of dynamical effects
