Neutrino processes and pair formation in massive stars and supernovae by William A Fowler( Book )
5 editions published between 1964 and 1967 in English and Russian and held by 11 libraries worldwide
The paper traces the physical properties of matter inside highly evolved stars, on the assumption that the whole material of the star is non-degenerate and that the star is in quasi-hydrostatic equilibrium. When these conditions are satisfied, the physical evolution of a particular element of material is insensitive to the stallar model but not to the total mass of the star. Our considerations refer explicity to stars of mass greater than approx. 10 micro sun but less than 1,000,000 micro sun, at which point general relativistic considerations become paramount. In Parts I and II neutrino-loss processes and neutrino-loss rates are examined. In Part III a method is developed for calculating the product mu beta as a function of temperature when electron positron pair formation is taken into account. In this product mu is the mean molecular weight and beta the ratio of gas pressure to gas plus radiation pressure. In Part IV the internal energy of matter is considered again as a function of temperature, and including the effects of pair formation. Parts V, VI, and VII are concerned with nuclear reactions, in particular with oxygen burning, the alpha-process, and the e-process. In the final Parts VIII and IX the onset of a supernova of Type II is considered in which the central core implodes while the mantle and envelope of the star explode. These considerations are tentative because the discussion now involves the structure of the whole star, and hence of the stellar model. It is emphasized that massive stard do not necessarily become Type II supernovae but can collapse to general relativistic singularities
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 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)
Nucleosynthesis during the early history of the solar system by William A Fowler( Book )
3 editions published between 1961 and 1962 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Abundances in terrestrial and meteoritic matter indicate that the synthesis of D(2), Li(6), Li(7), Be(9), B(10) and B(11) and possibly C(13) and N(15) occurred during an intermediate stage in the early history of the solar system. In this intermediate stage, the planetary material had become largely separated, but not completely, from the hydrogen which was the main constituent of primitive solar material. Appropriate physical conditions were satisfied by solid planetesimals of dimensions from 1 to 50 metres consisting of silicates and oxides of the metals embedded in an icy matrix. The synthesis occurred through spallation and neutron reactions simultaneously induced in the outer layers of the planetesimals by the bombardment of high energy charged particles, mostly protons, accelerated in magnetic flares at the surface of the condensing Sun. The total particle energy was approximately 10 to the 45th power ergs while the average energy was close to 500 MeV per nucleon. Recent studies of the abundance of lithium in young T Tauri stars serve as the primary astronomical evidence for this point of view. The observed abundances of lithium and beryllium in the surface of the Sun are discussed in terms of the astronomical and nuclear considerations brought forward

The big bang revisited early nucleosynthesis in an inhomogeneous universe by William A Fowler( visu )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
In contrast to 20-year models which described the universe as homogeneous and isotropic, recent investigations show that the quark-hadron phase transition in the early universe might result in high density proton-rich bubbles immersed in low density neutron-rich sea
