ADC_Keywords: Models, evolutionary ; Stars, halo ; Abundances Keywords: stars: evolution - stars: interiors - Galaxy: halo - stars: AGB and post-AGB Abstract: The growing body of spectral observations of the extremely metal-poor (EMP) stars in the Galactic Halo provides constraints on theoretical studies of the chemical and stellar evolution of the early Universe. To calculate yields for EMP stars for use in chemical evolution calculations and to test whether such models can account for some of the recent abundance observations of EMP stars, in particular the highly C-rich EMP (CEMP) halo stars. We modify an existing 1D stellar structure code to include time-dependent mixing in a diffusion approximation. Using this code and a post-processing nucleosynthesis code we calculate the structural evolution and nucleosynthesis of a grid of models covering the metallicity range: -6.5≤[Fe/H]≤-3.0 (plus Z=0), and mass range: 0.85≤M≤3.0M, amounting to 20 stars in total. Description: Each of the first 5 tables contains stellar model chemical yields for 4 stars with initial masses: M=0.85, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0M at a particular metallicity. The metallicities are: Z=0 and [Fe/H]=-6.5, -5.45, -4.0, -3.0. Note that the [Fe/H]=-4.0, 3M yield is missing due to a data loss (table4.dat). We also include a table containing the remnant core masses for each star (table6.dat). The yields are given in mass fraction integrated over the lifetime of the star (see paper for details). The models were evolved from the zero age main sequence up to the end of the asymptotic giant branch (AGB) phase. Time dependent mixing was calculated using a diffusion approximation. Opacities were updated to Iglesias & Rogers (1996ApJ...464..943I) (for mid-range temperatures) and Ferguson et al. (2005ApJ...623..585F) (for low temperatures). The Reimers (1975MSRSL...8..369R) mass loss formula was used during the RGB phase and the Vassiliadis & Wood (1993ApJ...413..641V) formula during the AGB phase. No overshoot was applied.
