J/A+A/509/A93       Carbon-enhanced metal-poor stars         (Masseron+, 2010)

ADC_Keywords: Stars, population II ; Stars, metal-deficient ; Abundances Keywords: stars: abundances - stars: AGB and post-AGB - stars: population II Abstract: Carbon-enhanced metal-poor (CEMP) stars are known to have properties that reflect the nucleosynthesis of the first low- and intermediate- mass stars, because most have been polluted by a now-extinct AGB star. By considering abundances in the various CEMP subclasses separately, we try to derive parameters (such as metallicity, mass, temperature, and neutron source) characterising AGB nucleosynthesis from the specific signatures imprinted on the abundances, and separate them from the impact of thermohaline mixing, first dredge-up, and dilution associated with the mass transfer from the companion. To place CEMP stars in a broader context, we collect abundances for about 180 stars of various metallicities (from solar to [Fe/H]=-4), luminosity classes (dwarfs and giants), and abundance patterns (e.g. C-rich and poor, Ba-rich and poor), from both our own sample and the literature. Description: We compiled abundances from analyses of high-resolution spectra (R>40000) of CEMP stars (Tables 1 and 2), Ba stars, and non-C-enhanced metal-poor stars (Tables 3 and 4). C-rich stars are defined as stars with [C/Fe]>0.9. In this paper, all plots are compiled exclusively of data from these tables, including our own data from Paper II (Masseron et al., in prep.). All these data are renormalised by the Asplund (2005ARA&A..43..481A) solar abundances. File Summary:
