By C. Esteban, R. J. García López, A. Herrero, F. Sánchez

This e-book includes the lectures added on the XIII Canary Islands iciness university of Astrophysics, which reviewed present wisdom concerning the beginning and evolution of the chemical components within the Universe. Written via seven prestigious astrophysics researchers, it covers cosmological and stellar nucleosynthesis, abundance determinations in stars and ionized nebulae, chemical composition of within reach and far-off galaxies, and versions of chemical evolution of galaxies and intracluster medium.

Awesome growth in near-infrared detection know-how and in real-time photo processing has led astronomers to begin venture all-sky surveys within the 1--2 mum diversity (project DENIS in Europe and 2MASS within the U.

Example text

E. e. when the core is extremely degenerate. Degeneracy of the stellar core implies: the density has grown so much that in order to avoid three fermions (here: electrons; only two with opposite spin are allowed) in the same phase space cell, we must have fermion momenta exceeding those given by the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution. Remember that the phase space is constructed from the three spatial and the three momentum coordinates. , for a high matter density ρ, a high (Pauli-forbidden) density in the phase space can be avoided by large particle momenta.

Isoabundance contours for D, 4 He, and 7 Li in the ∆Nν – η10 plane for four choices of the νe degeneracy parameter ξe . The shaded areas identify the ranges of parameters consistent with the abundances indicated (see the text). However, electron-type neutrinos play a unique role in BBN, mediating the neutronproton transformations via the weak interactions (see eq. 24). Suppose, for example, there are more νe than ν¯e . If µe is the νe chemical potential, then ξe ≡ µe /kT is the “neutrino degeneracy parameter”; in this case, ξe > 0.
