@article{Furusawa2017DependenceOW, title={Dependence of weak interaction rates on the nuclear composition during stellar core collapse}, author={Shun Furusawa and Hiroki Nagakura and Kohsuke Sumiyoshi and Chinami Kato and Shoichi Yamada}, journal={Physical Review C}, year={2017}, volume={95}, pages={025809} }

We investigate the influences of the nuclear composition on the weak interaction rates of heavy nuclei during the core collapse of massive stars. The nuclear abundances in nuclear statistical equilibrium (NSE) are calculated by some equation of state (EOS) models including in-medium effects on nuclear masses. We systematically examine the sensitivities of electron capture and neutrino-nucleus scattering on heavy nuclei to the nuclear shell effects and the single-nucleus approximation. We find…
