Abundance Determination in Stars: Some Pitfalls
Instituut voor Sterrenkunde, Celestijnenlaan 200B, 3001 Leuven, Belgium
The determination of stellar abundances is the most direct observational test for astronuclear physics. The reliability of such determinations depends on the quality of the observational data, but also critically on a correct understanding of all atmospheric processes as well as on fundamental atomic and molecular data. We illustrate this different aspects with several recent examples which served as a general introduction to the "round table" on this subject.
