Nonextensive statistical effects on nuclear astrophysics
Abstract
Density and temperature conditions in many stellar core (like the solar core) imply the presence of nonideal plasma effects with memory and longrange interactions between particles. This aspect suggests the possibility that the stellar core could not be in a global thermodynamical equilibrium but satisfies the conditions of a metastable state with a stationary (nonextensive) power law distribution function among ions. The order of magnitude of the deviation from the standard MaxwellBoltzmann distribution can be derived microscopically by considering the presence of random electrical microfields in the stellar plasma. We show that such a nonextensive statistical effect can be very relevant in many nuclear astrophysical problems.

In this paper, the ThomasFermi model for large atoms is reformulated by incorporating the nonextensive entropy prescription. The entropy nonextensivity contribution dominates the usual thermal correction term in the 'lowtemperature' limit. On the other hand, the entropy nonextensivity concept appears to provide a useful framework to describe the fractal nature of the Fermi surface in the nondegenerate case. Analytical calculations are given for some atomic properties, such as the total binding energy of the electrons in the atom. The nonextensivity of entropy is indicated to have the potential to provide a means to remedy one of the wellknown weaknesses inmore »

Computation of generalized and exact dispersion relations for longitudinal plasma waves in nonextensive statistics and the effects of the nonextensivity on the oscillation modes and damps
We have derived generalized dispersion relations for longitudinal waves in collisionless thermal plasma using linear VlasovPoisson kinetic model and nonextensive distributions for electrons. The Maxwellian limit of the dispersion relations, where the qnonextensive parameter tends to one, is calculated. The generalized dispersion relations are reduced to polynomials for some specific values of q. The wellknown modes of oscillations such as the Langmuir and electron acoustic waves have been obtained by solving the dispersion relations. Some new modes of oscillation are also found. Finally, the dependence of the oscillation modes and damps on q is discussed. 
White paper on nuclear astrophysics and low energy nuclear physics Part 1: Nuclear astrophysics
This white paper informs the nuclear astrophysics community and funding agencies about the scientific directions and priorities of the field and provides input from this community for the 2015 Nuclear Science Long Range Plan. It also summarizes the outcome of the nuclear astrophysics town meeting that was held on August 21–23, 2014 in College Station at the campus of Texas A&M University in preparation of the NSAC Nuclear Science Long Range Plan. It also reflects the outcome of an earlier town meeting of the nuclear astrophysics community organized by the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics (JINA) on October 9–10, 2012more »Cited by 2
