Magnesium abundance in the Galactic thick-disc stars and subsystem formation history
The space velocities and Galactic orbital elements of stars calculated from the currently available high-accuracy observations in our compiled catalogue of spectroscopic magnesium abundances in dwarfs and subgiants in the solar neighbourhood are used to identify thick-disc objects. We analyse the relations between chemical, spatial and kinematic parameters of F–G stars in the identified subsystem.
