Determining the Ages of Stars Using Isotropic Abundances According to Stellar Metamorphosis

Authors: Jeffrey Joseph Wolynski

In stellar metamorphosis stars in different stages to their evolution are present in the solar system. They are all mutually exclusive objects not related to the Sun, therefore should all have different isotropic abundances of essentially all elements. Since oxygen has three isotopes that are stable, O-16, O-17 and O-18 then we can use their ratios to determine how old a star is, based off simple processes that occur in stellar evolution.
