The Stellar Take on Lithium
2013 (English)In: New Advances in Stellar Physics: From Microscopic to Macroscopic Processes, 2013, 53-59 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This is a non-exhaustive review of what we have learned from 10+ years of cluster studies with multi-object spectrographs at 10 m-class telescopes about what stars do with their birth-cloud lithium. This light and fragile element ties together Big-Bang and stellar physics, stellar atmospheric and interior modelling, it is a sensitive measure of our ability to quantitatively model Big-Bang Nucleosynthesis, stellar physics and Galactic chemical evolution. Progress has undoubtedly been made, but the picture that emerges is far from complete.
