The chemical evolution of globular clusters - I. Reactive elements and non-metals

Marcolini, A.; Gibson, Bradley K; Karakas, Amanda; Sanchez-Blazquez, P


We propose a new chemical evolution model aimed at explaining the chemical properties of globular clusters (GCs) stars. Our model depends upon the existence of (i) a peculiar pre-enrichment phase in the GC's parent galaxy associated with very low-metallicity Type II supernovae (SNe II) and (ii) localized inhomogeneous enrichment from a single Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) and intermediate-mass (4-7 M⊙) asymptotic giant branch field stars. GC formation is then assumed to take place within this...[Show more]
