The work of Matsuura et al. [Phys. Rev. D 72, 123505 (2005)] claims that heavy nuclei could have been produced in a combined p- and r-process in very high baryon density regions of an inhomogeneous big bang. However, they do not account for observational constraints and previous studies which show that such high baryon density regions did not significantly contribute to big bang abundances. 
Constraint on Heavy Element Production in Inhomogeneous Big-Bang Nucleosynthesis from the Light Element Observations
We investigate the observational constraints on the inhomogeneous big-bang nucleosynthesis that Matsuura et al. (2005) suggested that states the possibility of the heavy element production beyond 7Li
Reply to ``Comment on `Heavy element production in inhomogeneous big bang nucleosynthesis'''
This is a reply to Rauscher [Phys. Rev. D 75, 068301 (2007)]. We studied heavy element production in the high baryon density region in the early universe [Phys. Rev. D 72, 123505 (2005)]. However, it
Light element production in the big bang and the synthesis of heavy elements in 3D MHD jets from core-collapse supernovae
In this dissertation we present the main features of a new nuclear reaction network evolution code. This new code allows nucleosynthesis calculations for large numbers of nuclides. The main results
THE 8 Li(α, n) 11 B REACTION RATE AT ASTROPHYSICAL TEMPERATURES
At temperatures (0.5-1.2) × 109 K, the 8Li + 4He → 11B+n reaction can allow for 12C and heavier element production in the framework of the inhomogeneous big bang nucleosynthesis. At temperatures
SOLVING THE LARGE DISCREPANCY BETWEEN INCLUSIVE AND EXCLUSIVE MEASUREMENTS OF THE 8Li + 4He → 11B + n REACTION CROSS SECTION AT ASTROPHYSICAL ENERGIES
A solution of the large discrepancy existing between inclusive and exclusive measurements of the 8Li + 4He → 11B + n reaction cross section at E cm < 3 MeV is evaluated. This problem has profound
Toward correction-free 8Li(, n)11B data at the Gamow energy of explosive nucleosynthesis
The 8Li+4He → 11B+n reaction inside the center-of-mass energy region Ecm = 0.5–2.5 MeV, corresponding to the temperature range T9 = 1–5, is of relevant interest in the fields of nuclear cosmology and
