Nuclear Effective Forces and their Use in Astrophysical Problems
Although more and better nuclear data are most often claimed by nuclear astrophysicists, the need for better nuclear theories is rarely expressed with the same conviction. The success of phenomeno-logical, easy-to-use, formulae based on popular macroscopic theories may explain this self-confident attitude. Many astrophysical processes however deal with physical conditions or quantities which are not at present, and some will never be, accessible to terrestrial experiments and the nuclear physics involved in those processes will depend — sometimes critically — on the extrapolation of expressions established on the basis of the existing experimental data.
