This review concentrates on nucleosynthesis processes in general and their applications to massive stars and supernovae. A brief initial introduction is given to the physics in astrophysical plasmas which governs composition changes. We present the basic equations for thermonuclear reaction rates and nuclear reaction networks. The required nuclear physics input for reaction rates is discussed, i.e. cross sections for nuclear reactions, photodisintegrations, electron and positron captures… 
Neutron Capture Nucleosynthesis: Probing Red Giants and Supernovae
Neutron reactions are responsible for the formation of all elements heavier than iron. The corresponding seenarios relate to helium burning in Red Giant stars (s process) and to supernova explosions
Explosive Nucleosynthesis in Hypernovae
We examine the characteristics of nucleosynthesis in "hypernovae," i.e., supernovae with very large explosion energies (≳1052 ergs). We carry out detailed nucleosynthesis calculations for these
EXPLOSIVE NUCLEOSYNTHESIS IN THE NEUTRINO-DRIVEN ASPHERICAL SUPERNOVA EXPLOSION OF A NON-ROTATING 15 M ☉ STAR WITH SOLAR METALLICITY
We investigate explosive nucleosynthesis in a non-rotating 15 M☉ star with solar metallicity that explodes by a neutrino-heating supernova (SN) mechanism aided by both standing accretion shock
Supernova Nucleosynthesis: Models vs. Observations
Type II supernovae (SNe II) are linked to massive stars (M>8M⊙) at the end of their evolution. Gravitational collapse results in a central hot proto-neutron star which cools via neutrino emission.
Nucleosynthesis in Magnetically Driven Jets from Collapsars
We have made detailed calculations of the composition of magnetically driven jets ejected from collapsars, or rapidly rotating massive stars, based on long-term magnetohydrodynamic simulations of
NUCLEOSYNTHESIS IN TWO-DIMENSIONAL DELAYED DETONATION MODELS OF TYPE Ia SUPERNOVA EXPLOSIONS
For the explosion mechanism of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia), different scenarios have been suggested. In these, the propagation of the burning front through the exploding white dwarf (WD) star
Supernovae from massive stars
Massive stars, by which we mean those stars exploding as core collapse supernovae, play a pivotal role in the evolution of the Universe. Therefore, the understanding of their evolution and explosion
Quantum Statistical Corrections to Astrophysical Photodisintegration Rates
Tabulated rates for astrophysical photodisintegration reactions make use of Boltzmann statistics for the photons involved as well as the interacting nuclei. Here, we derive analytic corrections for
