Where can I find the astrophysical S-factors for those thermonuclear reactions that produce electron neutrinos?
Astrophysical S-factors for thermonuclear reactions that produce electron neutrinos.
All Answers (2)
although not specific to neutrino reactions, there are experimental databases of the S-factor for most astrophysical nuclear reactions, as:
and also theoretical predictions by nuclear models (see for example:
Good morning Dr. Fontana.
Thank you for your information, I appreciate it. I have been reading the article you just shared and it is really helpful. I was wondering if you have some information about the Astrophysical S-factor when it is evaluated in the gamow peak (S(E_0)). I checked a couple of articles and they had the value for some neutrino reactions, but not all of them. I have e.g. p + p, but they do not have the rest of them. I'd appreciate it if you may give me a hand with this, because I've been stuck at this and also need an expression for events number in a solar neutrino detector.
Thank you very much.

B3LYP in VASP
- Ki Chul Kim
While I looked through a set of commands which has to be included for each of hybrid functionals, I found some weird information.
VASP wiki site suggests us to use the following commands for PBE0 functional.
LHFCALC = .TRUE.
AEXX=0.25, AGGAX=0.75, AGGAC=1.0 and ALDAC=1.0
GGA = PE
Most of other hybrid functionals (HSE03, HSE06) are also suggested to use AGGAC=1.0 and ALDAC=1.0.
I could guess from this information (AGGAC=1.0; ALDAC=1.0) that AGGAC means just a gradient correction itself introduced to LDA.
Therefore, in my opinion, GGA (AGGAC=1.0 and ALDAC=1.0) contains the contributions of both the electron density and the gradient of the electron density to the correlation energy.
In contrast, AGGAC=1.0 and ALDAC=0.0 indicates the contribution of the electron density gradient only to the correlation energy.
I think that this is the main reason why VASP wiki suggest AGGAC=1.0 and ALDAC=1.0 instead of AGGAC=1.0 and ALDAC=0.0.
However, my understanding constructed on the basis of the afore-mentioned information has been messed up due to the commands for B3LYP.
VASP wiki site suggests us to use the following commands for B3LYP functional.
LHFCALC = .TRUE.
GGA = B3
AEXX = 0.2
AGGAX = 0.72
AGGAC = 0.81
ALDAC = 0.19
I have no idea of why the site suggests ALDAC=0.19 instead of ALDAC=1.0, although B3LYP uses the combination of the purely electron density-based correlation energy (LDA) of 19% and the gradient-corrected LDA correlation energy (GGA) of 81% by definition.
I think AGGAC=0.81 and ALDAC=0.19 means LDA of 19% and just gradient correction of 81%.
How do we determine the number of electrons of an atom ?
- Newgato Chiro
Are we (me excluded) sure that an electron is a particle ?
If not, is its nature "countable" ?
Today if someone asks you to show them (experimentally of course) what is the number of electron in an atom what will you do.
Thank you in advance
Explanation of the galaxy rotation problem and quantum entanglement

I solved the two mentioned conflicts by suggesting a postulate states that “force of gravitation has a maximum and a minimum limit that at it, the force of gravitation is constant independent of space” or in other words “the force of gravitation has a finite range”, thus if the mass of the center of the orbital system is huge enough, its gravitational force can reach to the maximum limit of attraction, so the force of gravitation between it and other surrounding bodies in the orbital system be constant independent of space, while if mass of a body is small enough (e.g. electrons), its gravitational force can reach to the minimum limit of attraction, so the force of gravitation between the two electrons be constant independent of space between them.
