Wigner X resolved and photo-reaction cross-section predictions: Improvements for astrophysical calculations
by Ian Bentley Nuclear potential energy surfaces are generated using a micro-macro model. This is done in an automated procedure called AutoTAC which is used to find equilibrium deformation
Nucleosynthesis of heavy elements in the r-process
The current state of the problem of heavy-element production in the astrophysical r-process is surveyed. The nucleosynthesis process in the neutron-star-merger scenario, within which the problem of
Probabilities of delayed processes for nuclei involved in the r-process
Delayed fission, along with induced and spontaneous fission, is responsible for the suppression of the production of superheavy elements both during the r-process and after its completion. Beta-decay
Nucleon direct-semidirect radiative capture with Skyrme-Hartree-Fock-BCS bound states
The nucleon direct-semidirect (DSD) capture cross sections are obtained by calculating a transition amplitude to the Hartree-Fock-BCS bound states. The radial matrix elements in the DSD amplitudes
On the dynamics of proto-neutron star winds and r-process nucleosynthesis
We study here the formation of heavy r-process nuclei in the high-entropy environment of rapidly expanding neutrino-driven winds from compact objects. In particular, we explore the sensitivity of the
The Nuclear Reaction Waiting Points: 22Mg, 26Si, 30S, and 34Ar and Bolometrically Double-peaked Type I X-Ray Bursts
Type I X-ray bursts with a double peak in the bolometric luminosity have been observed from several sources. The separation between the two peaks is on the order of a few seconds. We propose a


Thermal properties of 54Fe.
We study the thermal properties of 54Fe with the Brown-Richter interaction in the complete 1p0f model space. Monte Carlo calculations show a peak in the heat capacity and rapid increases in both the
Nuclear ground state masses and deformations
Abstract We tabulate the atomic mass excesses and nuclear ground-state deformations of 8979 nuclei ranging from 16O to A = 339. The calculations are based on the finite-range droplet macroscopic
