Astrophysical Γ-ray Lines: a Probe of Stellar Nucleosynthesis and Star Formation


Astrophysical gamma-ray spectroscopy is a most valuable tool for studying nuclear astrophysics, as well as recent star formation in the Milky Way. After a short, historical, introduction to the field, I present a brief review of the most important current issues. Emphasis is given to radioactivities produced by massive stars and associated supernova… (More)
