The evolution of isotope ratios in the Milky Way Galaxy

Kobayashi, Chiaki; Karakas, Amanda; Umeda, Hideyuki

Description

Isotope ratios have opened a new window into the study of the details of stellar evolution, supernovae and galactic chemical evolution. We present the evolution of the isotope ratios of elemental abundances (from C to Zn) in the solar neighbourhood, bulge, halo and thick disc, using chemical evolution models with updated yields of asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars and core-collapse supernovae. The evolutionary history of each element is different owing to the effects of the initial progenitor...[Show more]
