Contains the lectures delivered at the XIII Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics, which was dedicated to reviewing current knowledge about the origin and evolution of the chemical elements in the Universe. Written by seven prestigious astrophysics researchers, it covers cosmological and stellar nucleosynthesis, abundance determinations in stars and ionised nebulae, chemical composition of nearby and distant galaxies, and models of chemical evolution of galaxies and intracluster medium.
'Although almost three years have passed since the course was held (the most recent references are from 2002), the articles read well because all the authors have taken the trouble to introduce their subject with useful textbook-style material and give generally thoughtful treatments ! this book is of considerably more lasting value than your run-of-the-mill conference proceedings.'
