The models cover an initial mass range from 1 M to 7 M. Final surface abundances and stellar yields are calculated for all elements from hydrogen to bismuth as well as isotopes up to the iron group. We present the first study of neutron-capture nucleosynthesis in intermediate-mass AGB models, including a super-AGB model, of [Fe/H]=-1.2. We examine in detail a low-mass AGB model of 2 M where the 13C(α,n)16O reaction is the main source of neutrons. We also examine an intermediate-mass AGB model of 5 M where intershell temperatures are high enough to activate the 22Ne neutron source, which produces high neutron densities up to ∼1014 n/cm3. Hot bottom burning is activated in models with M≥3 M. With the 3 M model, we investigate the effect of varying the extent in mass of the region where protons are mixed from the envelope into the intershell at the deepest extent of each third dredge-up. We compare the results of the low-mass models to three post-AGB stars with a metallicity of [Fe/H]~-1.2. The composition is a good match to the predicted neutron-capture abundances except for Pb and we confirm that the observed Pb abundances are lower than what is calculated by AGB models. Description: We calculate AGB stellar models for a range of initial masses from 1 M to 7 M with a metallicity of Z=0.001 ([Fe/H]=-1.2) and a helium abundance of Y=0.25. For the purposes of this study, we define the low-mass models to be those with an initial mass up to and including 3 M, and the intermediate-mass models, 3.25 M and above. Each stellar model is evolved from the zero-age main sequence to near the end of the AGB phase when the majority of the convective envelope is lost by stellar winds. A two-step procedure is performed to calculate the structure and detailed nucleosynthesis for each stellar model. File Summary:
