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 their core collapse with various distributions of magnetic field and angular momentum before collapse. We follow the evolution of the abundances of about 4000 nuclides from the collapse phase to the ejection phase and through the jet generation phase using a large nuclear reaction network. We find that… 
Nucleosynthesis of r‐process elements by jittering jets in core‐collapse supernovae
We calculate the nucleosynthesis inside the hot bubble formed in the jittering-jets model for core-collapse supernova explosions, and find the formation of several times 10−4 M⊙ r-process elements.
A REVIEW OF r-PROCESS NUCLEOSYNTHESIS IN THE COLLAPSAR JET

Neutron Star Mergers and Nucleosynthesis of Heavy Elements
The existence of neutron star mergers has been supported since the discovery of the binary pulsar and the observation of its orbital energy loss, consistent with General Relativity. They are
