11:15 am:
Nuclear Physics Seminar in Tate 301-20
Speaker: Andre Sieverding, University of Minnesota
Subject: Neutrinos in core-collapse supernova nucleosynthesis

Supernova explosions of massive stars provide an important
contribution to the chemical enrichment of the galaxy and neutrinos
and their interactions with nuclei play a crucial role in that
environment. I will give an overview of the role of neutrinos for
supernova explosions and present recent progress in nucleosynthesis
calculations for the neutrino process, that combine state-of-the art
nuclear models and astrophysical modelling.

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