Santos 17 Solar chemical peculiarities?? /. Observations of metal-rich regions have shown that stars hosting giant planets are generally metal-rich, which has triggered further observations of metal-rich stars. This has led to the discovery of new exoplanets, and advances in the study of planet formation and the late chemical evolution of galaxies.

  Preface; Part I. Abundances in the Galaxy: Field Stars: 1. Metal-rich stars and stellar populations: A brief history and new results; 2. The metal-rich nature of stars with planets; 3. Solar chemical peculiarities; 4. Kinematics of metal-rich stars with and without planets; 5. Elemental abundance trends in the metal-rich thin and thick disks; 6. Metal-rich massive stars - how metal-rich are Cited by: In astronomy, metallicity is the abundance of elements present in an object that are heavier than hydrogen or of the physical matter in the Universe is in the form of hydrogen and helium, so astronomers use the word "metals" as a convenient short term for "all elements except hydrogen and helium". This usage is distinct from the usual physical definition of a solid metal.   The Metal-Rich Universe by Garik Israelian, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. This book is the first on this topic, and it covers many aspects, from spectral-line formation to stellar formation and evolution in high-metallicity regimes. It is invaluable to researchers and graduate students in stellar evolution, extragalactic Cambridge University Press. The Metal-rich Universe.
