  author={Ivo R. Seitenzahl and Abel Marin-Lafl{\`e}che and Georgios Magkotsios},
Proton-rich material in a state of nuclear statistical equilibrium (NSE) is one of the least studied regimes of nucleosynthesis. One reason for this is that after hydrogen burning, stellar evolution proceeds at conditions of equal number of neutrons and protons or at a slight degree of neutronrichness. Proton-rich nucleosynthesis in stars tends to occur… CONTINUE READING
