  1. 1. On the Abundances of Li, Be and O in Metal-Poor Stars in the Galaxy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ana Elia García Pérez; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Astronomy; galactic evolution; stellar abundances; stellar atmospheres; spectral line formation; stellar mixing; Astronomi; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Astronomy and astrophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Astronomi och astrofysik;

    Abstract : Stellar atmospheres constitute excellent environments to study the chemical evolution of our Galaxy. The chemical composition of these atmospheres reflects the composition of the gas from where these stars were born. READ MORE

  2. 2. Atomic Processes in Stellar Atmospheres Inelastic Collisions and Effects on Late-type Spectra

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Yeisson Fabian Martinez Osorio; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Spectral line: formation; atomic data; stellar abundances.; Fysik med inriktning mot astrofysik; Physics with specialization in Astrophysics;

    Abstract : Chemical abundances as measured from stellar spectral lines are often subject to uncertainties due to lack of accurate data for inelastic collisions, which is needed for non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (non-LTE) modelling. For cool stars, understanding of collision processes with electrons and hydrogen atoms is required to achieve high precision measurements. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the Chemical Composition of Metal-Poor Stars Impact of Stellar Granulation and Departures from Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium on the Formation of Spectral Lines

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Remo Collet; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Astronomy; late-type stars; stellar abundances; stellar atmospheres; spectral line formation; convection; hydrodynamics; Galactic chemical evolution; Astronomi;

    Abstract : The information about the chemical compositions of stars is encoded in their spectra. Accurate determinations of these compositions are crucial for our understanding of stellar nucleosynthesis and Galactic chemical evolution. READ MORE

  4. 4. Theoretical Atomic Spectroscopy of Earthbound and Stellar Plasma

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Physics

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; atomstruktur; atomära processer; elektronkorrelation; plasmaspektroskopi; magnetfält; hyperfinstruktur; solkoronan; rymdväder; förekomst av grundämnen i stjärnor; datorsimuleringar; Zeemaneffekt; relativistiska effekter; atomic structure; atomic processes; computer simulation; electron correlation; relativistic atomic theory; plasma spectroscopy; Zeeman effect; magnetic fields; hyperfine structure; solar corona; space weather; stellar abundances; Fysicumarkivet A:2016:Grumer;

    Abstract : Motivated by spectroscopic analysis of astrophysical and laboratory plasma, this thesis concerns the fundamental structure and spectral properties of atoms and their ions. The multiconfiguration Dirac-Hartree-Fock (MCDHF) method is used to predict the emission or absorption of radiation, by atomic systems in general, and of heavy and highly charged ions in particular.

  5. 5. Dwarf and Subgiant Stars as Probes of Galactic Chemical and Dynamical Evolution

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Patrik Thorén; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Astronomy; Abundances; atomic data; Galactic evolution; late-type stars; main sequence stars; subgiants; Pop II; Pop I; stellar evolution; Astronomi; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Astronomy and astrophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Astronomi och astrofysik; astronomi; Astronomy;

    Abstract : Stellar chemical abundances provide astronomers with vital information about the production of chemical elements. Some stars preserve the composition of the environment in which they were born on their surfaces. READ MORE
