The Chemical Evolution of Spiral Galaxies: The Galaxy, M31, M33, M83, and M101
One of the possible applications of stellar nucleosynthesis models is the study of the behaviour of chemical elements during the evolution of galaxies. The combination of correct models of stellar nucleosynthesis and of galactic evolution should allow to reproduce the observed properties of each element, in particular the absolute value and the radial distribution of the element abundance.
