Atomic Masses in Astrophysics

  • Marcel Arnould


Very neutron-rich or neutron-deficient nuclei, even up to the drip lines (and sometimes beyond!) are expected to be produced or to exist in certain astrophysical circumstances. A correct description of these events requires in particular a reliable prediction of the masses of the involved highly unstable nuclei.
