I am interested in learning about big bang nucleosynthesis, nuclear fusion up to iron in stellar cores and beyond iron in supernovas, and into the lithium problem (galactic abundance anomoly for atomic numbers 3,4,5). As these topics are interlinked, I have been hoping to find good resources on the subject. Can anyone recommend a good source for self-study? In case it's relevant (regarding difficulty level), I'm a physics grad student lacking exposure to related topics.
I highly recommend Nucleosynthesis and Chemical Evolution of Galaxies by Bernard Pagel. It contains the basics of nuclear reactions andstellar evolution, chapters on big bang nucleosynthesis and light element production, as well as covering the broad swathe of stellar nucleoynthesis and how these link together into predicting the chemical evolution of galaxies.
