Meeting Report: "Nucleosynthesis - Origins and Impacts"
A Royal Astronomical Society Specialist Discussion.
Valentine's Day, 2014
Present day isotopic abundances are the direct result of - and indeed evidence for - the nuclear physics processes occurring in the Universe.  A deep understanding of nucleosynthesis requires input from scientists working in a broad range of disciplines, Bringing these communities together was the principle aim of this Specialist Discussion, updating one another on recent advances, and hopefully enabling and motivating further progress.  Speakers included Brad Gibson (UC Lancs), Alex Murphy (Edinburgh), Christian Diget (York), Marco Pignatari (Basel), Stephen Smartt (QUB), Monica Grady (OU), Hilary Downes (Birkbeck), Katrin Lind (Cambridge) and Vincent Margerin (Edinburgh). The topics covered were galactic chemical evolution, recent advances in nuclear astrophysics techniques, key nuclear physics uncertainties, stellar modelling, core collapse supernovae, pre-solar meteorites, and isotope variations both in the solar neighbourhood and in stars. The meeting attracted around 40 participants and was organised on behalf of the Royal Astronomical Society by Alex Murphy (Edinburgh) and Sean Ryan (Herts). This meeting follows similar recent meetings organised under the auspices of the Institute of Physics. The slides of the talks are available in the following folder: RAS meeting slides.
