The Ursa Major group is a nearby stellar supercluster which, while not gravitationally bound, is defined by co-moving members.
DD UMa is a Scuti star whose membership in the Ursa Major group is unclear.
The objective of this study is to confirm the membership of DD UMa in the Ursa Major group, as well as perform a detailed
spectral analysis of the star. Since DD UMa is a low-amplitude Scuti star, we performed a frequency analysis. We determined
fundamental parameters, chemical abundances, and derive a mass and age for the star.
For this study we observed DD UMa at the Okayama Astrophysical Observatory with the high-resolution spectrograph HIDES,
between the 27th
of February and the 4th
