Solar fusion cross sections

- E. Adelberger, S. Austin, +36 authors J. Wilkerson
- Physics
- 12 May 1998

We review and analyze the available information on the nuclear-fusion cross sections that are most important for solar energy generation and solar neutrino production. We provide best values for the… Expand

Speed-up of neutrino transformations in a supernova environment

- R. Sawyer
- Physics
- 1 March 2005

When the neutral current neutrino-neutrino interaction is treated completely, rather than as an interaction among angle-averaged distributions, or as a set of flavor-diagonal effective potentials,… Expand

Effects of correlations on neutrino opacities in nuclear matter

- A. Burrows, R. Sawyer
- Physics
- 11 January 1998

Including nucleon-nucleon correlations due to both Fermi statistics and nuclear forces, we have developed a general formalism for calculating the neutral-current neutrino-nucleon opacities in nuclear… Expand

Multiangle instability in dense neutrino systems

- R. Sawyer
- Physics
- 30 March 2008

We calculate rates of flavor exchange within clouds of neutrinos interacting with each other through the standard model coupling, assuming a conventional mass matrix. For cases in which there is an… Expand

Neutrino Cloud Instabilities Just above the Neutrino Sphere of a Supernova.

- R. Sawyer
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 10 September 2015

Most treatments of neutrino flavor evolution, above a surface of the last scattering, take identical angular distributions on this surface for the different initial (unmixed) flavors, and for… Expand

Many-body corrections to charged-current neutrino absorption rates in nuclear matter

- A. Burrows, R. Sawyer
- Physics
- 24 April 1998

Including nucleon--nucleon correlations due to both Fermi statistics and nuclear forces, we have developed a general formalism for calculating the charged--current neutrino--nucleon absorption rates… Expand

Erratum: Damping of vibrations and of the secular instability in quark stars

- R. Sawyer
- Physics
- 28 December 1989

We calculate the bulk viscosity of hot quark matter, or “strange” matter, which could be present in neutron stars. In the temperature range characteristic of young neutron stars, the bulk viscosity… Expand

Entanglement and quantal coherence: Study of two limiting cases of rapid system-bath interactions

In this paper, we consider the dynamics of a system coupled to a thermal bath, going beyond the standard two-level system through the addition of an energy excitation degree of freedom. Further… Expand

The Salpeter plasma correction for solar fusion reactions

- J. Bahcall, L. Brown, A. Gruzinov, R. Sawyer
- Physics
- 2 October 2000

We describe five different ways of obtaining the Salpeter formula for the plasma corrections to fusion rates; this formula is valid at the center of the sun with insignificant errors (~percent).… Expand
