Chemically-old stars with young age estimates
The combination of a large spectroscopic survey and asteroseismology has discovered a peculiar stellar population in the Galactic disk: they are estimated to be young from their masses but has similar alpha-elements abundances to old stars. Since their existence is not predicted in simple galactic chemical evolution models, the origin is yet to be explained. We obtained high-quality high-resolution optical spectra for 14 of such stars. In addition to the confirmation of their alpha-enhancements, we show that they follow the typical abundance pattern of old stars in almost all the measured elements. Together with the high frequency of radial velocity variation, we suggest they are results of stellar merger or mass transfer from red giants.

Lyman Alpha Imaging around a Hyperluminous QSO at z=2.84
Ly-alpha imaging is a powerful technique to study galaxy formation at high-redshift by detecting redshifted Ly-alpha emission line with narrowband filters. I present the latest results of our Ly-alpha imaging around a hyperluminous QSO at z=2.84, namely HS1549+1919, with HSC/Subaru. We have detected >3400 LAEs within 36 arcmin from the QSO (i.e., ~1.1 deg^2 FoV). The QSO is found to reside in the center of massive overdensity of LAEs which is embedded within a large scale (~100 cMpc) structure of LAEs. We have also detected a gigantic Ly-alpha nebula around the QSO as well as many Ly-alpha blobs. The nebula is the largest and the most luminous to date and has a peculiar morphology: bubble-like structure extending several hundred kpc. After sharing the current status I present our future plans to further reveal galaxy formation in this rich environment. Your comments and suggestions are very welcome.
