The r-process: Recent progress and needs for nuclear data

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Several nuclear physics issues essential to understanding the r-process are discussed. These include validity of the waiting-point approximation, strength of closed neutron shells in neutron-rich nuclei far from stability, and effects of neutrino interaction with such nuclei. The needs for nuclear data in resolving these issues are emphasized.
