Gauging the Helium Abundance of the Galactic Bulge RR Lyrae Stars
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2018)
We report the first estimate of the He abundance of the population of RR Lyrae stars in the Galactic bulge. This is done by comparing the recent observational data with the latest models. We use the large samples of ab-type ...
Chemically Dissected Rotation Curves of the Galactic Bulge from Main-sequence Proper Motions
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2018-05)
We report results from an exploratory study implementing a new probe of Galactic evolution using archival Hubble Space Telescope imaging observations. Precise proper motions are combined with photometric relative metallicity ...
Oxygen and zinc abundances in 417 Galactic bulge red giants
(EDP Sciences, 2018)
Context. Oxygen and zinc in the Galactic bulge are key elements for the understanding of the bulge chemical evolution. Oxygen-to-iron abundance ratios provide a most robust indicator of the star formation rate and chemical ...
