Super-massive stars as a source of the p-capture element abundance anomalies in globular clusters

Project summary
In this project we show that H burning in main-sequence stars of ~10,000 solar masses could explain all the proton-capture element abundance anomalies observed in Glactic globular clusters.
About the simulation codes
We used the stellar evolution code of MESA (revision 5329).
