Title: Neutrinos and Nuclear Physics of Heavy Element Nucleosynthesis

Abstract

One of the foremost goals of nuclear astrophysics is to understand the origins of the heaviest elements. The basics of the nuclear processes that create these elements have long been understood, however major open questions remain regarding the astrophysical sites of production. Additional uncertainties come from the unknown nuclear properties of unstable nuclei that shape the resulting abundance patterns. Here we describe work to identify characteristics of nucleosynthetic sites by forging explicit links between astronomical observations, astrophysical simulations, low energy nuclear theory, and radioactive beam experiments.
