Description:
A century ago, nuclear physics entered astrophysics, giving birth to a new field of science referred to as Nuclear Astrophysics. The present Astronuclear Physics review focuses primarily on the facets of nuclear physics that are of relevance to astronomy and astrophysics, the theoretical aspects being of special concern here.
