NuGrid Collaboration

Science Goal

Our science goal is to provide complete sets of stellar evolution sequences for low-mass and massive stars with compatible input physics, including explosion simulations, and calculate the complete nucleosynthesis with the same post-processing code. In this way we will obtain a high degree of internal consistency. We plan to generate yield sets covering the entire mass and metallicity space, in collaboration with teams working in galactic chemical evolution and near-field cosmology.


The NuGrid approach is characterized by a commitment to forward modeling based on our physics understanding of the involved processes, verification and validation, and uncertainty quantification, including the important aspect of nuclear physics input.
