Neutron-induced reaction rates for the formation of heavy and superheavy nuclei in the astrophysical r-process are presented. Neutron-induced reactions, including fission and neutron capture, at astrophysical temperatures are treated within the framework of the statistical model and calculated for targets with the atomic number 84 < Z < 118, using different mass and fission barrier predictions. The dependence of heavy element yields from nuclear explosions on the target nuclei, nuclear reactions, and nuclear models is discussed.
