Abundance similarities between the R CrB star V854 Cen and the born-again Sakurai's object

Asplund, Martin; Gustafsson, Bengt; Rao, N.Kameswara; Lambert, David L


The elemental abundances of the mildly hydrogen-deficient R Coronae Borealis (R CrB) star V854 Cen have been estimated. The R CrB stars have been divided into majority and minority classes judging by their abundance patterns. Class assignment has previously been unambiguous but V854 Cen has traits of both the minority and majority class. Neither V854 Cen nor the three obvious minority members show any clear abundance signatures of having been affected by e.g. dust-gas separation as often...[Show more]
