About these proceedings


This book provides a thorough review of the abundances of the elements up to Boron. Special emphasis is laid on primordial abundances of interest to cosmologists in particular, and on stellar production or destruction respectively. The articles, written for researchers and graduate students, cover theory and the most recent observational data.
