    About the chemical composition of delta Scuti - the prototype of the class of pulsating variables

    Full text link
    We present chemical abundances in the photosphere of δ\delta Scuti -- the prototype of the class of pulsating variables -- determined from the analysis of a spectrum obtained at Terskol observatory 2 meter telescope with resolution R=52,000R=52,000, signal to noise ratio 250. VLT and IUE spectra were used also . Abundance pattern of \dsct consists of 49 chemical elements. The abundances of Be, P, Ge, Nb, Mo, Ru, Er, Tb, Dy, Tm, Yb, Lu, Hf, Ta, Os, Pt, Th were not investigated previously. The lines of third spectra of Pr and Nd also are investigated for the first time. The abundances of heavy elements show the overabundances with respect to the Sun up to 1 dex. The abundance pattern of \dsct is similar to that of Am-Fm stars.Comment: 8 pages, 2 figures, subm. to Proc. of IAU Symp. 22

    The chemical composition of a mild barium star HD202109

    We present the result of chemical abundances of a mild barium star HD202109 (zeta Cyg) determined from the analysis of spectrum obtained by using a 2-m telescope at the Peak Terskol Observatory and a high-resolution spectrometer with R=80,000, signal to noise ratio >100. We also present the atmospheric parameters of the star determined by using various methods including iron-line abundance analysis. For line identifications, we use whole-range synthetic spectra computed by using the Kurucz database and the latest lists of spectral lines. Among the determined abundances of 51 elements, those of P, S, K, Cu, Zn, Ge, Rb, Sr, Nb, Mo, Ru, Rh, Pd, In, Sm, Gd, Tb, Dy, Er, Tm, Hf, Os, Ir, Pt, Tl, and Pb have not been previously known. Under the assumption that the overabundance pattern of Ba stars is due to wind-accretion process, adding information of more element abundances enables one to show that the heavy element overabundances of HD202109 can be explained with the wind accretion scenario model.Comment: 10 pages, Accepted by Astronomy and Astrophysic
