Title page; Indice; Preface; Gruppo fotografico dei partecipanti al Corso; SUPERNOVAE AND NEUTRON STARS; Stellar evolution: From hydrostatic burning to core collapse; Introduction; Astrophysical nuclear reaction rates; Hydrostatic burning stages; Hydrogen burning; Solar neutrinos; Helium burning; Carbon, neon, oxygen, silicon burning; Core collapse supernovae; Electron captures in core-collapse supernovae -- the general picture; Weak-interaction rates and presupernova evolution; The role of electron capture during collapse; Making heavy elements in explosive nucleosynthesis; The nu p process.
Summary: Physicists have devoted much effort to reproducing the conditions of the primordial universe in laboratory conditions in their quest to work out a comprehensive theory of the appearance and evolution of nuclear matter. Whether it be trying to recreate the predicted primordial state of high-energy density matter in which quarks and gluons are effectively deconfined - the so-called Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) - or exploring the structure and reaction properties of very unstable nuclei in experiments using radioactive beams, they have striven to understand the events which characterized the Big Bang.
