Turbulent mixing of r-process elements in the Milky Way

16 Jun 2020 Beniamini Paz Hotokezaka Kenta

We study turbulent gas diffusion affects on $r$-process abundances in Milky Way stars, by a combination of an analytical approach and a Monte Carlo simulation. Higher $r$-process event rates and faster diffusion, lead to more efficient mixing corresponding to a reduced scatter of $r$-process abundances and causing $r$-process enriched stars to start appearing at lower metallicities...
