Abstract

The first generation of stars in the universe may have been different from stars in the present-day universe. They may have been typically more massive than stars that form today, or may have rotated faster and hence their evolution, explosion,and overall nucleosynthesis yield could have been quite different. Theoretical models are needed to qualify and quantify these differences. Here we present nucleosynthesis results from the first generations of stars in the universe and how they may be connected to observed abundance patterns from ultra-metal poor stars.
