Nuclear astrophysics review

A new review by scientists from EuroGENESIS CRP EXNUC in Reports on Progress in Physics provides comprehensive insight into the nuclear history of the Universe and related topics: starting from the Big Bang, when the ashes from the primordial explosion were transformed to hydrogen, helium and a few trace elements, to the rich variety of nucleosynthesis mechanisms and sites in the Universe.


Metallicity effects in type I X-ray bursts

In a paper accepted in Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series scientists of the EuroGENESIS CRP EXNUC present hydrodynamic models for thermonuclear stellar explosions called type I X-ray bursts and analyze metallicity effects in these phenomena.
