18). -L. model is R = R E , and therefore the maximal density cannot be much higher than the present density. 31) where x == REI Ro. The maximal redshift 1 + Zmax = 1/x corresponds to the maximal contraction R = R E • For instance for x ~ 10- 2 we find Q o < 2 X 10- 6, in clear contradiction to the observational evidence (Chap. 2). For the model with a minimum value (Rmin) of R (t), we can establish the relation between A, Q o and x == RminlRo. 33) 22 1.

The H-R diagram for various star clusters. 6 2 (8 - V)o contain main-sequence stars. Instead, the stars of higher luminosity populate a branch to the right of the H-R main sequence, the red-giant branch. The assumption that all stars in a cluster were born at the same time is probably justified, and therefore the luminosity (or mass) of the stars sitting exactly at the turn-off point on the main sequence can determine the age of the cluster via the formulae given in the introduction. This sounds easy enough.
Only a phenomenological description (the "mixing-length theory") exists for this effect. 1 Age Determinations 43 No relation between age and metallicity was found: the ages of metal-rich clusters such as 47Tuc and M71 are also in the bracket of 15 -18 billion years. The age of the open cluster NGC 188 in the galactic disc was determined to be about 1010 years. Thus there seems to be an age difference of up to 8 billion years between Halo stars and stars in the disc. The assumptions on the He abundance for the initial models influence the results: 10070 of 4He initially (probably too Iowa value; see also Chap.
