  • This review focuses on nuclear reactions in astrophysics and, more specifically, on reac- tions with light ions (nucleons andparticles) proceeding via the strong interaction. It is intended to present the basic definitions essential for studies in nuclear astrophysics, to point out the differences between nuclear reactions taking place in stars and in a terrestrial laboratory, and to illustrate some of the challenges to be faced in theoretical and experimental studies of those reactions.
