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

Abstract

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
