The Astrophysical Origin of the Heavy Elements and Related Rare Isotope Accelerator Physics - Procs of the First Argonne/Msu/Jina/Int Ria WorkshopeBook - 2004
The r-process is a major mechanism for producing elements heavier than Fe. In this book, a summary of recent developments in theoretical, experimental and observational studies of the r-process are presented in 25 contributions. The collected papers are up to date, comprehensive and yet concise. The topics covered include experiments on nuclei far from stability, nuclear theory input for the r-process, observational and theoretical studies on abundances of heavy nuclei, and astrophysical models of the r-process. The proceedings have been selected for coverage in: Index to Scientific & Technical Proceedings® (ISTP® / ISI Proceedings) Index to Scientific & Technical Proceedings (ISTP CDROM version / ISI Proceedings) CC Proceedings - Engineering & Physical Sciences. Contents: The r -Process in Supernovae (F-K Thielemann et al.); Weak Strength for Astrophysics (S M Austin & R Zegers); Neutron Captures and the r -Process (T Tauscher); Equation of State and Neutrino Opacity of Dense Steller Matter (S Reddy); An Overview of Observations of Neutron-Capture Elements in Metal-Poor Stars (J A Johnson); Nuclear Reaction Rates and the Production of Light p -Process Isotopes in Fast Expansions of Proton-Rich Matter (G C Jordan et al.); General Relativity and Neutrino-Driven Supernova Winds (C Y Cardall); Ejecta from Parametrized Prompt Explosion (S Wanajo et al.); Neutrino Transport in Core Collapse Supernovae (M Liebendörfer); and other papers. Readership: Graduate students and researchers in nuclear physics, astrophysics and accelerator physics.
