Nucleosynthesis of heavy elements by neutron capture by Philip A Seeger ( Book )
4 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nucleosynthesis of elements heavier than the iron group by neutron capture on both slow and fast time scales is evaluated. The s-process calculations of Clayton, Fowler, Hull, and Zimmerman (Ann. Phys. 12:331, 1961) were revised to include more recent experimental results on abundances and neutron capture cross-sections. The solar-system s-process abundances indicate a history of neutron exposure distributions characterized by decreasing probability of high integrated flux; an exponential exposure distribution is extracted. Estimates are made of the s-process contribution to each isotopic abundance; a table gives the amounts of elements produced by each process in the solar-system material. The r-process calculations are carried out using a semi-empirical atomic-mass law to determine neutron-binding energies and beta-decay probabilities. The solar-system r-process material has probably been synthesized in two distinct types of environments. (Author)

The generation of energy in red giant stars by William A Fowler ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author describes the nuclear reaction which converts hydrogen to helium, or the process of the Sun, and explains how stars evolve into red giants after most of their hydrogen is used up. He then describes the nuclear reaction in red giants as one which converts helium to beryllium 8 to carbon l2
