Lithium abundances of halo dwarfs based on excitation temperatures. II. Non-local thermodynamic equilibrium

Hosford, A.; Garcia Perez, Ana; Collet, R; Ryan, S. G.; Norris, John; Olive, Keith

Description

Context: The plateau in the abundance of 7Li in metal-poor stars was initially interpreted as an observational indicator of the primordial lithium abundance. However, this observational value is in disagreement with that deduced from calculations of Big Bang nucleosynthesis (BBN), when using the Wilkinson microwave anisotropy probe (WMAP) baryon density measurements. One of the most important factors in determining the stellar lithium abundance is the effective temperature. In a previous study...[Show more]
