Abstract.

The microscopic study of nuclear giant resonances has been a passion of Pier Francesco Bortignon. These resonances play important roles in various astrophysical scenarios. This article summarizes how the improved description of giant resonances has helped to deepen our understanding of the dynamics of core-collapse and electron capture supernovae as well as of the nucleosynthesis associated with these events and also of thermonuclear supernovae. We briefly mention the role of giant resonances for s- and r-process nucleosynthesis and give an overview of the impact of improved supernova modelling and advanced descriptions of neutrino-nucleus reactions on the synthesis of selected nuclei by the neutrino process.
