An updated library of reaction rates for the astrophysical rp-process.
Fisker, J. L.
We are developing an updated library with reaction rates important for the study of the astrophysical rp- process. It includes both experimental and theoretical rates parametrized in terms of the standard REACLIB format. The experimental data contain various compilations updated with the most recent data. The theoretical data are taken from shell-model calculations whenever available otherwise statistical Hauser-Feshbach calculations were used. All theoretical rates were recalculated using the latest reaction Q-values. All new rates include stellar enhancement factors. The data will be accessed through a convenient web interface. It is anticipated that this JINA project evolves into an evaluated public data archive for reaclib library data.
