About these proceedings


These peer-reviewed NIC XV conference proceedings present the latest major advances in nuclear physics, astrophysics, astronomy, cosmochemistry and neutrino physics, which provide the necessary framework for a microscopic understanding of astrophysical processes. The book also discusses future directions and perspectives in the various fields of nuclear astrophysics research. In addition, it also includes a limited number of section of more general interest on double beta decay and dark matter.


Cosmology and Big Bang nucleosynthesis Stellar contributions to chemical evolution Hydrostatic and explosive nucleosynthesis Neutrino and nucleus interaction in the cosmos Physics of nuclei far from stability Synthesis of heavy elements Direct observation of nucleosynthesis in stars Study of extraterrestrial materials Nucleosynthesis in extreme environments Techniques, tools and facilities for nuclear astrophysics Nuclear data for astrophysical applications Particle astrophysics and rare events in the cosmos stellar nucleosynthesis supernovae
