The Galactic bulge and old stellar populations

13 Sep 2019, 10:20


Prof. Beatriz Barbuy


We present observations and theoretical models regarding the formation of the Galactic bulge. Our main interest concerns the blue horizontal branch and moderately metal-poor globular clusters, that might be among the oldest objects in the Galaxy. We also present abundances, in particular of heavy elements, that could provide evidence for early s-process nucleosynthesis in early rotating massive stars.
