Paper Abstract

Most naturally occurring elements were evidently synthesized in the interiors of stars, and, in particular, most of the heavy ones via neutron capture processes. We present here an introductory review on the stellar alchemy by neutrons. In due course, we attempt to cover the very basics through the latest developments of theoretical studies of the rapid (r-) process.
