Abstract

The probability for the production of superheavy elements in the astrophysical r-process is discussed. The dependence of the estimated superheavy-element yields on input data is estimated. Preliminary calculations revealed that the superheavy-element yields at the instant of completion of the r-process may be commensurate with the uranium yield, but the former depend strongly on the models used to forecast the properties of beta-delayed, neutron-induced, and spontaneous fission. This study is dedicated to the 80th anniversary of V.S. Imshennik’s birth.
