The lead discrepancy in intrinsically s-process enriched post-AGB stars in the Magellanic Clouds

De Smedt, K; van Winckel, Hans; Kamath, D; Karakas, Amanda; Siess, Lionel; Goriely, S; Wood, P


Context. Our understanding of the s-process nucleosynthesis in asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars is incomplete. AGB models predict, for example, large overabundances of lead (Pb) compared to other s-process elements in metal-poor low-mass AGB stars. This is indeed observed in some extrinsically enhanced metal-poor stars, but not in all. An extensive study of intrinsically s-process enriched objects is essential for improving our knowledge of the AGB third dredge-up and associated s-process...[Show more]
