Abstract

We review different models used for reactions involved in nuclear astrophysics. The reaction rate is defined for resonant as well as for non-resonant processes. For low-density nuclei, we describe the DWBA method, the potential model, the R-matrix method, and microscopic cluster models. The statistical model is developed for high-level densities. Details of calculations in the low- and high-density regimes are illustrated with new results concerning transfer reactions and level densities. (c) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
