Nucleosynthesis is the process that creates new atomic nuclei from pre-existing nucleons protons and neutrons and nuclei. According to current theories, the first nuclei were formed a few minutes after the Big Bang , through nuclear reactions in a process called Big Bang nucleosynthesis. The rest is traces of other elements such as lithium and the hydrogen isotope deuterium. Nucleosynthesis in stars and their explosions later produced the variety of elements and isotopes that we have today, in a process called cosmic chemical evolution. The amounts of total mass in elements heavier than hydrogen and helium called 'metals' by astrophysicists remains small few percent , so that the universe still has approximately the same composition. Stars fuse light elements to heavier ones in their cores , giving off energy in the process known as stellar nucleosynthesis.
The atoms of our world did not always exist. They were created over a very long time span. The relative numbers of different chemical atoms are not the same from place to place nor from time to time in the universe. This talk will explain the evidence supporting these conclusions. Its key is the relative abundances of differing chemical atoms observed in different places. The atoms of our daily lives, the calcium of our bones or the iron in our blood hemoglobin, were created by thermonuclear reactors near the centers of hundreds of millions of stars that had evolved and died before our earth and solar system were born.

Teaching and learning nuclear astrophysics has its challenges as the field crosses multiple disciplines. When teaching nuclear astrophysics, one rarely has all the expertise necessary, and when learning nuclear astrophysics, it can be difficult at a single institution to access the broad range of resources and expertise needed. We therefore offer links to material that should help with teaching nuclear astrophysics, and with self-learning. Graduate level course in stellar physics by Prof. Edward Brown at Michigan State University.

Please attempt to solve the problems on your own before consulting other students. You may consult books and published papers but not old homework solutions from this or any other class. After that, discussion of hte problems with other students in this class to improve your understanding of the underlying physics is permitted and encouraged. However, you may not copy homework solutions. The formal Ay policy is that students can freely discuss the problems, but they need to work out solutions on their own without referring to others' solutions. Homework is due by pm on the dates indicated.

Все сгрудились вокруг нее и прочитали текст: …распространено заблуждение, будто на Нагасаки была сброшена плутониевая бомба. На самом деле в ней использовался уран, как и в ее сестрице, сброшенной на Хиросиму. - Но… - Сьюзан еле обрела дар речи. - Если оба элемента - уран, то как мы найдем различие между. - А вдруг Танкадо ошибся? - вмешался Фонтейн. - Быть может, он не знал, что бомбы были одинаковые.
