J/ApJ/667/911  Abundances on the main sequence of ω Cen  (Stanford+, 2007)

Abundances on the main sequence of ω Centauri. Stanford L.M., Da Costa G.S., Norris J.E., Cannon R.D. <Astrophys. J., 667, 911-929 (2007)> =2007ApJ...667..911S
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular; Stars, dwarfs ; Abundances Keywords: globular clusters: general - globular clusters: individual (omega Centauri) Abstract: Abundance ratios of carbon, nitrogen, and strontium relative to iron, calculated using spectrum synthesis techniques, are given for a sample of main-sequence and turnoff stars that belong to the globular cluster omega Centauri. The variations of carbon, nitrogen, and/or strontium show several different abundance patterns as a function of [Fe/H]. The source of the enhancements/depletions in carbon, nitrogen, and/or strontium may be enrichment from asymptotic giant branch stars of low (1-3M and intermediate (3-8M mass. Massive rotating stars that produce excess nitrogen without carbon and oxygen overabundances may also play a role. These abundances enable different contributors to be considered and incorporated into the evolutionary picture of omega Cen. Description: The observations and reduction of our data are described in detail in Stanford et al. (2006, Cat. J/ApJ/647/1075), to which we refer the reader. Suffice it here to say that the photometry of the cluster was obtained with the 1m telescope/Tektronix CCD combination at Siding Spring Observatory in the V and B bands. File Summary:
