The origin of the elements and other implications of gravitational wave detection for nuclear physics
The neutron-star collision revealed by the event GW170817 gave us a first glimpse of a possible birthplace of most of our heavy elements. The multi-messenger nature of this historical event combined
Neutrino Oscillations in the Model of Interaction of Spinor Fields with Zero-Range Potential Concentrated on a Plane
Symanzik’s approach to the description of quantum field systems in an inhomogeneous space-time is used to construct a model for the interaction of neutrino fields with matter. In this way, the


Neutrino-driven supernova of a low-mass iron-core progenitor boosted by three-dimensional turbulent convection
We present the first successful simulation of a neutrino-driven supernova explosion in three dimensions (3D), using the Prometheus-Vertex code with an axis-free Yin-Yang grid and a sophisticated
Three-dimensional Core-collapse Supernova Simulated Using a 15 M⊙ Progenitor
We have performed ab initio neutrino radiation hydrodynamics simulations in three and two spatial dimensions (3D and 2D) of core-collapse supernovae from the same 15 M⊙ progenitor through 440 ms
Synthesis of the Elements in Stars
Man inhabits a universe composed of a great variety of elements and their isotopes. In Table I,1 a count of the stable and radioactive elements and isotopes is listed. Ninety elements are found
