A single model for the variety of multiple-population formation(s) in globular clusters: A temporal sequence

D’Antona, F.; Vesperini, Enrico; D’Ercole, A.; Ventura, P; Milone, Antonino; Marino, Anna; Tailo, Marco


We explain the multiple populations recently found in the ‘prototype’ globular cluster (GC) NGC 2808 in the framework of the asymptotic giant branch (AGB) scenario. The chemistry of the five – or more – populations is approximately consistent with a sequence of star formation events, starting after the Type II supernova epoch, lasting approximately until the time when the third dredge-up affects the AGB evolution (age ∼90–120 Myr), and ending when the Type Ia supernovae begin exploding in the...[Show more]
