On the metallicity dependance of the [Y/Mg] - age relation for solar type stars

12 Oct 2016 Feltzing S. Howes L. M. McMillan P. J. Stonkute E.

Several recent studies of Solar twins in the Solar neighbourhood have shown a tight correlation between various elemental abundances and age, in particular [Y/Mg]. If this relation is real and valid for other types of stars as well as elsewhere in the Galaxy it would provide a very powerful tool to derive ages of stars without the need to resort to determining their masses (evolutionary stage) very precisely...
