Nuclear physics and astrophysics of the r-process

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

9 Scopus citations


Some nuclear and astrophysical aspects of the r-process are discussed. Particular attention is paid to observations of abundances in metal-poor stars and their implications for the astrophysical site and yield patterns of the r-process. The effects of supernova neutrinos and related nuclear processes on the yield patterns are explored. The uncertainties in the theoretical nuclear input for the r-process are discussed and the need for experimental data is emphasized.
