Screened thermonuclear reactions in astrophysical plasmas: Improving Salpeter’s and Mitler’s models

  • Theodore E. Liolios
  • Published 2002


This paper presents a detailed study of the electron degeneracy and nonlinear screening effects which play a crucial role in the validity of the most widely used screening models, i.e. Salpeter’s and Mitler’s. The limitations of both models are investigated and we prove that they are both based on the wrong weak-screening assumptions. To remedy this error… (More)
