Presupernova Evolution of 8–12 M Stars and the Crab Nebula's Progenitor

  • Ken'ichi Nomoto (a1) (a2)
Abstract

The elemental abundances of the Crab Nebula are compared with the presupernova models of 8–12 M stars. The small carbon abundance of the Crab is consistent with only the star whose main-sequence mass was 8–9.5 M. More massive stars contain too much carbon in the helium layer and smaller mass stars do not leave neutron stars. A scenario for the Crab Nebula's progenitor is proposed.
