Solar models with accretion. I. Application to the solar abundance problem The increase in C is a consequence of the lower SFII value for 15N(p,γ )16O, a reaction that competes with the CN I cycle reaction 15N(p,α)12C and allows mass to ﬂow out of the CN I cycle into CN II. Solar models with accretion. I. Application to the solar abundance problem This paper is devoted to the study of reaction kinetics of the annihilation reaction A + A → Study of Anomalous Kinetics of The Annihilation Reaction A+A->0 In (1) µ+ and µ− are the reaction constants of the creation and annihilation reactions, respectively. Field Theory Approach In Kinetic Reaction: Role Of Random Sources And Sinks We present calculations for quasi-elastic neutrino-induced nucleon knockout reactions on atomic nuclei and neutrino-induced pion production reactions. Modeling neutrino-nucleus interactions in the few-GeV regime At the same time, negative shift of direct reaction corresponds to the positive shift of its reverse reaction, and such an approach to the 2-way modeling occurred to be more smooth and rational. Later on the reverse shifts are represented conditionally by negative values in the graphs. New Thermodynamic Paradigm of Chemical Equilibria This is the case of absolute irreversibility. The first observation is relevant to the systems with thermodynamically not-robust reactions, the second − to the systems with robust reactions. New Thermodynamic Paradigm of Chemical Equilibria Equilibrium reaction extents and shifts in reaction (34) homological series. New Thermodynamic Paradigm of Chemical Equilibria Moreover, we also considered the case of slightly simpliﬁed neutrino interaction rates, neglecting the effect of recoil, high-density correlations and weak magnetism in neutrino-nucleon reactions and ignoring reactions between different neutrino ﬂavours. General Relativistic Explosion Models of Core-Collapse Supernovae The investigation on nuclear ﬁssion reactions, induced by nucleons on heavy targets, can be associated with two fundamental questions, which are not fully explored: the reaction mechanism induced by neutrons and protons for a wide range of energy, and nuclear ﬁssion properties. Fragments formation in proton-induced fission at 660 MeV of 238-U While the former is reaction dependent, the latter is a universal property of nucleon structure common to the various exclusive reactions.
