The bulge has been suggested to be either a merger-driven classical bulge or the product of a dynamical instability of the inner disk.Aims. To probe the star formation history, the initial mass function and stellar nucleosynthesis of the bulge, we performed an elemental abundance analysis of bulge red giant stars. We also completed an identical study of local thin...[Show more]
