Core-collapse supernovae are the first polluters of heavy elements in the galactic history. As such, it is important to study the nuclear compositions of their ejecta, and understand their dependence on the progenitor structure (e.g., mass, compactness, metallicity). Here, we present a detailed nucleosynthesis study based on two long-term, two-dimensional core-collapse supernova simulations of a 11.2 Mlsubg⊙l/subg and a 17.0 Mlsubg⊙l/subg star. We find that in both models nuclei well beyond the… Expand
PUSHing Core-collapse Supernovae to Explosions in Spherical Symmetry. IV. Explodability, Remnant Properties, and Nucleosynthesis Yields of Low-metallicity Stars
In this fourth paper of the series, we use the parametrized, spherically symmetric explosion method PUSH to perform a systematic study of two sets of non-rotating stellar progenitor models. Our studyExpand

In a previously presented proof-of-principle study, we established a parametrized spherically symmetric explosion method (PUSH) that can reproduce many features of core-collapse supernovae for a wideExpand
Nucleosynthesis in Supernovae
We present the status and open problems of nucleosynthesis in supernova explosions of both types, responsible for the production of the intermediate mass, Fe-group and heavier elements (with theExpand
Heavy elements nucleosynthesis on accreting white dwarfs: building seeds for the p-process
The origin of the proton-rich trans-iron isotopes in the solar system is still uncertain. Single-degenerate thermonuclear supernovae (SNIa) with n-capture nucleosynthesis seeds assembled in theExpand
Enhanced triple-α reaction reduces proton-rich nucleosynthesis in supernovae.
In proton-rich core-collapse supernova outflows, hitherto neglected processes enhance the triple-α reaction rate by up to an order of magnitude, which suppression of heavy-element nucleosynthesis for realistic conditions casts doubt on the νp process being the explanation for the anomalously high abundances of 92,94Mo and 96,98Ru isotopes in the Solar System.

Explosive Nucleosynthesis: What We Learned and What We Still Do Not Understand
This review touches on historical aspects, going back to the early days of nuclear astrophysics, initiated by B\(^2\)FH and Cameron, discusses (i) the required nuclear input from reaction rates andExpand

The impact of asymmetric neutrino emissions on nucleosynthesis in core-collapse supernovae II – progenitor dependences
We investigate the impact of asymmetric neutrino-emissions on explosive nucleosynthesis in core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe) of progenitors with a mass range of 9.5 to 25$M_{\odot}$. We performExpand
