In this review, we discuss the impact of s-process nucleosynthesis in asymptotic giant branch stars on the enrichment of heavy elements. We review the main steps made on this subject in the last 40 years and discuss the importance of modelling the evolution of the abundances of such elements in our Milky Way. From the comparison between model results and observations, we can impose strong constraints on stellar nucleosynthesis, as well as on the evolution of the Milky Way.

Abstract

In this review, we discuss the impact of s-process nucleosynthesis in asymptotic giant branch stars on the enrichment of heavy elements. We review the main steps made on this subject in the last 40 years and discuss the importance of modelling the evolution of the abundances of such elements in our Milky Way. From the comparison between model results and observations, we can impose strong constraints on stellar nucleosynthesis, as well as on the evolution of the Milky Way.
