Entropy, Neutrino Physics, and the Lithium Problem: Why Are there Stars with Essentially no Lithium Due to Serious Lithium Deficiency in Certain Spatial Regions in the Early Universe?

Authors: Andrew Beckwith

The consequences of abnormally low lithium abundance in a nearby population II star (which is almost as old as the supposed population III stars) as represented by HE0107-5240 are that standard BBN theory is out of sync with observations. Why such a low value for lithium problem in any stars as due to stellar formation and gravitational perturbation on DM will be discussed. Neutrino-gravitational wave interaction leads to a damping factor in intensity of relic GW of {1-5*(neutrino density/total density) +.. }, as shown in CMBR data sets may be a solution.. Analysis the big bang nucleosynthesis may help explain the anomalously low value of lithium abundance in the star HE0107-5240 which by orthodox BBN should not exist, as explained by Shigeyama et al. 2003
