Brancazio, P.J., A. Gilbert, and A.G.W. Cameron, 1967: Abundance anomalies produced by nuclear reactions in stellar surface layers: I. Nuclear-reaction rates. Can. J. Phys., 45, 3275-3296, doi:10.1139/p67-275.

A preliminary investigation of the effects on abundances in stellar surfaces of extensive nuclear bombardment required the calculation of more than 105 nuclear-reaction cross sections. It was necessary to develop simplified methods for using the statistical theory of nuclear reactions to make these calculations in order that the computer time should not be prohibitive. These methods are described here and the results are compared with experiment. The accuracy of the calculations is, in general, about as good as, or somewhat better than, that obtained in previous applications of the statistical theory, probably because the use of an accurate level density formula outweighed the crudity of other approximations.
