Stellar Abundances & Nucleosynthesis Conference

March 27-29, 2002

Sponsored by the Institute for Nuclear Theory and
the University of Washington Department of Astronomy

Topics to be included will be:

  • Light elements and isotopes produced in the Big Bang
  • Beryllium, Boron and their origins
  • Abundances in globular clusters and other extremely metal-poor stars
  • Mixing and nucleosynthesis
  • The r-process and iron-peak elements as produced in SNIIs
  • Evidence from distant damped Lyman-alpha clouds
  • Other topics introduced by contributed papers
