Heavy Element Abundances in Giant Stars of the Globular Clusters M4 and M5

Yong, David; Karakas, Amanda; Lambert, David L; Chieffi, A; Limongi, M.


We present a comprehensive abundance analysis of 27 heavy elements in bright giant stars of the globular clusters M4 and M5 based on high-resolution, high signal-to-noise ratio spectra obtained with the Magellan Clay Telescope. We confirm and expand on previous results for these clusters by showing that (1) all elements heavier than, and including, Si have constant abundances within each cluster, (2) the elements from Ca to Ni have indistinguishable compositions in M4 and M5, (3) Si, Cu, Zn,...[Show more]
