PROSPECTS for CHEMICALLY TAGGING STARS in the GALAXY

Ting, Yuan; Conroy, Charlie; Goodman, Alyssa A.

Description

It is now well-established that the elemental abundance patterns of stars hold key clues not only to their formation, but also to the assembly histories of galaxies. One of the most exciting possibilities is the use of stellar abundance patterns as "chemical tags" to identify stars that were born in the same molecular cloud. In this paper, we assess the prospects of chemical tagging as a function of several key underlying parameters. We show that in the fiducial case of 104 distinct cells in...[Show more]
