Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 148

Description:
We present an up-to-date review of Big Bang Nucleosynthesis (BBN). We discuss the main improvements which have been achieved in the past two decades on the overall theoretical framework, summarize the impact of new experimental results on nuclear reaction rates, and critically re-examine the astrophysical determinations of light nuclei abundances.

Book cover: Mathematical Problems Of Radiative EquilibriumMathematical Problems Of Radiative Equilibrium
by - Cambridge University Press
Schwarzschild's work on absorption and diffusion in the sun's atmosphere rendered the theory of radiative equilibrium a definite chapter of mathematical astrophysics. Besides the known results the reader will also find discussions of other models.
