- Title: An abundance analysis for Vega: Is it a lambda Boo star?
- Keyword(s): STARS: CHEMICALLY PECULIAR, LAMBDA BOO STARS, STARS: INDIVIDUAL: VEGA
- Pages: 467 -- 469
Since Baschek & Slettebak drew attention to the similarity between
the abundance pattern of lambda Boo stars and that of Vega, there has been
a long debate whether Vega should be listed among the chemically peculiar
stars of lambda Boo type. We performed an elemental abundance analysis
using a high dispersion spectrum in the optical region, and confirmed
its mild metal underabundance. In our discussion we reinforce the suggestion
that Vega is a mild lambda Boo star.
