Fusion reactions in multicomponent dense matter

Yakovlev, D G; Gasques , Leandro; Afanasjev, A.V.; Beard, M; Wiescher, M.


We analyze thermonuclear and pycnonuclear fusion reactions in dense matter containing atomic nuclei of different types. We extend a phenomenological expression for the reaction rate, proposed recently by Gasques [Phys. Rev. C 72, 025806 (2005)] for the one-component plasma of nuclei, to the multicomponent plasma. The expression contains several fit parameters which we adjust to reproduce the best microscopic calculations available in the literature. Furthermore, we show that pycnonuclear...[Show more]
