An update on the big bang nucleosynthesis prediction for 7Li: The problem worsens
The lithium problem arises from the significant discrepancy between the primordial 7Li abundance as predicted by big bang nucleosynthesis (BBN) theory and the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe
Big bang nucleosynthesis: Present status
Big-bang nucleosynthesis (BBN) describes the production of the lightest nuclides via a dynamic interplay among the four fundamental forces during the first seconds of cosmic time. We briefly overview
Primordial nucleosynthesis for the new cosmology: Determining uncertainties and examining concordance
Big bang nucleosynthesis (BBN) and the cosmic microwave background (CMB) have a long history together in the standard cosmology. The general concordance between the predicted and observed light
A Bitter Pill: The Primordial Lithium Problem Worsens
The lithium problem arises from the significant discrepancy between the primordial Li abundance as predicted by BBN theory and the WMAP baryon density, and the pre-Galactic lithium abundance inferred
THE JINA REACLIB DATABASE: ITS RECENT UPDATES AND IMPACT ON TYPE-I X-RAY BURSTS
We present results from the JINA REACLIB project, an ongoing effort to maintain a current and accurate library of thermonuclear reaction rates for astrophysical applications. Ongoing updates are
Big Bang Nucleosynthesis: 2015
Big-bang nucleosynthesis (BBN) describes the production of the lightest nuclides via a dynamic interplay among the four fundamental forces during the first seconds of cosmic time. We briefly overview
Solar fusion cross sections II: the pp chain and CNO cycles
The available data on nuclear fusion cross sections important to energy generation in the Sun and other hydrogen-burning stars and to solar neutrino production are summarized and critically
Primordial Nucleosynthesis in Light of WMAP
Abstract Big bang nucleosynthesis has long provided the primary determination of the cosmic baryon density Ω B h 2 , or equivalently the baryon-to-photon ratio, η. Recently, data on CMB anisotropies
Solar neutrino constraints on the BBN production of Li
Using the recent WMAP determination of the baryon-to-photon ratio, ${10}^{10}\ensuremath{\eta}=6.14$ to within a few percent, big bang nucleosynthesis (BBN) calculations can make relatively accurate
