Question about nucleosynthesis
 
Hi:

I am aware of 4 types of nucleosynthesis processes. The R-process and
S-process are types of neutron capture. The P-process and Rp-process
are types of proton-captures. I believe the R-process requires more
density and temperature than the S-process. Of the 4 processes, which
requires the most density and temperature?

Thanks,

Radium
