Nuclear Astrophysics

How are the elements formed and distributed in the universe? What is the role of nuclei in shaping the evolution of the universe? Nucleosynthesis that occurred during the cooling following the Big Bang gave rise to primordial abundances of the lightest elements H, He, and Li. Nearly all other chemical elements in the universe are produced as a result of nuclear reactions in stars or cataclysmic events events at the end of a star's life. The reaction products are expelled into the interstellar medium by stellar winds or events such as nova and supernova explosions, and neutron star mergers.

White Paper on the Context of Research in Canada

The CINP and IPP were asked by NSERC to prepare a joint document on "the context of Canadian subatomic physics research" for distribution to the Subatomic Physics Evaluation Section (SAPES) shortly before their 2014 fall policy meeting, with the opportunity for the committee to ask questions on it. This was in response to our request to reinstate the discontinued SAPES fall site visits, given their value to both international and domestic members of the committee in understanding the Canadian research context and environment.

White Paper on High Performance Computing

Compute Canada had a call in June 2014 for White Papers for Sustainable Planning for Advanced Research Computing (SPARC). Due to the many common requirements, it was felt that a much stronger case could be made if a common document on the "Computing requirements for the Canadian subatomic physics community" could be prepared on behalf of both the Institute of Particle Physics and the Canadian Institute of Nuclear Physics.
