2. Energy Generation The calculation of the energy generation includes the individual rates for the PP-chain (PPI, PPII, PPIII), the CNO-cycle with a simplified NO approach to equilibrium. The coefficients of all of the reaction rates and the formulae for most of them are taken from Fowler et al. [1975]. The reaction rate for the PP-chain is actually that for the H'(p, e+v)D 2 reaction and assumes that all the other reactions in the chain are relatively instantaneous. 0/7;'). 262/Tr ). 333/ 7;" In the calculation of the CNO bi-cycle, CN equilibrium is assumed and the CN cycle is assumed o be the only source of energy.
