Abundance patterns in a stars: Carbon and silicon

Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 401)


It is shown that the seemingly erratic abundance variation of carbon among normal A stars is in fact a tight anticorrelation with silicon and other elements that may be explained by gas-dust separation in the protostellar or circumstellar environment.
