Subject: Supernova Neutrinos and Nucleosynthesis: Implications for Chemical Evolution of Galaxies

I will review my recent works with various collaborators on nucleosynthesis by supernovae from progenitors of different masses and how this is affected by properties and interaction of neutrinos. Implications for chemical evolution of galaxies are discussed and an initial effort to build a model for individual dwarf galaxies is presented.

The weekly calendar is also available via subscription to the physics-announce mailing list, and by RSS feed.
