  • We present a comprehensive study of s-process nucleosynthesis in 15, 20, 25, and 30 M☉ stellar models having solar-like initial composition. The stars are evolved up to ignition of central neon with a 659 species network coupled to the stellar models. In this way, the initial composition from one burning phase to another is consistently determined, especially with respect to neutron capture reactions. The aim of our calculations is to gain a full account of the s-process yield from massive… CONTINUE READING
