Suppression of Excited-State Contributions to Stellar Reaction RatesAug 27 2013It has been shown in previous work [Phys. Rev. Lett. 101, 191101 (2008); Phys. Rev. C 80, 035801 (2009)] that a suppression of the stellar enhancement factor (SEF) occurs in some endothermic reactions at and far from stability. This effect is re-evaluated ... More

General properties of astrophysical reaction rates in explosive nucleosynthesisSep 18 2012Sep 25 2012Fundamental differences in the prediction of reaction rates with intermediate and heavy target nuclei compared to the ones with light nuclei are discussed, with special emphasis on stellar modifications of the rates. Ground and excited state contributions ... More

Evolution and Nucleosynthesis of Massive Stars and Related Nuclear UncertaintiesMay 23 2003Jun 13 2003Properties of atomic nuclei important for the prediction of astrophysical reaction rates are reviewed. In the first part, a recent simulation of evolution and nucleosynthesis of stars between 15 and 25 solar masses is presented. This study is used to ... More

Global Transmission Coefficients in Hauser-Feshbach Calculations for AstrophysicsFeb 09 1998The current status of optical potentials employed in the prediction of thermonuclear reaction rates for astrophysics in the Hauser-Feshbach formalism is discussed. Special emphasis is put on $\alpha$+nucleus potentials. A novel approach for the prediction ... More

Electroweak Strings: A Progress ReportJan 03 1993I describe the string solutions in the standard electroweak model and argue that they may be stabilized by quark, lepton or other bound states. I then reinterpret the sphaleron in terms of electroweak strings and show that it can be viewed as a loop of ... More

Finite $W$ symmetry in finite dimensional integrable systemsOct 08 1992By generalizing the Drinfeld-Sokolov reduction a large class of $W$ algebras can be constructed. We introduce 'finite' versions of these algebras by Poisson reducing Kirillov Poisson structures on simple Lie algebras. A closed and coordinate free formula ... More

Independent Sets in Classes Related to Chair/Fork-free GraphsMar 07 2016The Maximum Weight Independent Set (MWIS) problem on graphs with vertex weights asks for a set of pairwise nonadjacent vertices of maximum total weight. MWIS is known to be $NP$-complete in general, even under various restrictions. Let $S_{i,j,k}$ be ... More

Nuclear Forces from Lattice QCDSep 30 2009A method to extract nucleon-nucleon (NN) potentials from the Bethe-Salpeter amplitude in lattice QCD is presented. It is applied to the two nucleons on the lattice with quenched QCD simulations. By disentangling the mixing between the S-state and the ... More

Statistical mechanics of gravitating systems: An OverviewDec 14 2008Feb 16 2009I review several issues related to statistical description of gravitating systems in both static and expanding backgrounds. After briefly reviewing the results for the static background, I concentrate on gravitational clustering of collisionless particles ... More
