A large number of proton capture reactions cannot be measured directly at astrophysically important energies with current experimental techniques. Over the past decade, indirect methods have been used extensively for the study of nuclear structure and nuclear reaction mechanisms in order to infer the nuclear cross sections of astrophysical interest. Some of the experimental techniques will be discussed by using as an example a recent study of the [sup 24]Mg(p,γ)[sup 25]Al reaction which is important for hydrogen burning in globular cluster red giant stars. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    It is possible to measure some stellar cross sections without worrying too much about why the nuclei are built the way that they are. At the same time, many cross sections are impossible to measure because they are either too small or involve short-lived nuclei. Also, at high temperatures and...

    Emission line polarization of T Tauri stars provides us unique information on the circumstellar structure and kinematic motion around these objects. However, foreground interstellar polarization of these objects is often crucial to evaluate their intrinsic polarization correctly. We performed...

    Context. Resonance rings and pseudorings (here collectively called rings) are thought to be related to the gathering of material near dynamical resonances caused by non-axisymmetries in galaxy discs. This means that they are the result of secular evolution processes that redistribute material...
