Modelling the observed properties of carbon-enhanced metal-poor stars using binary population synthesis

Abate, Alexandra; Pols, O R; Stancliffe, R. J.; Izzard, R. G.; Karakas, Amanda; Beers, Timothy C; Lee, Young Sun


The stellar population in the Galactic halo is characterised by a large fraction of carbon-enhanced metal-poor (CEMP) stars. Most CEMP stars have enhanced abundances of s-process elements (CEMP-s stars), and some of these are also enriched in r-process elements (CEMP-s/r stars). In one formation scenario proposed for CEMP stars, the observed carbon excess is explained by invoking wind mass transfer in the past from a more massive thermally-pulsing asymptotic giant branch (AGB) primary star in a...[Show more]
