The nucleus is a unique laboratory to study the complex nature of the many-body dynamics. A real challenge at present is the understanding of nuclei very far from stability. The study of those nuclei, many of which can be reached in upcoming radioactive ion beam facilities, may require drastic changes in standard concepts in nuclear structure physics. The description of these nuclei will provide an additional test to our understanding of the nuclear shell model and the underlying nucleon-nucleon interaction. In this project we will simulate the nuclear masses with a code we developed and use the mass as input to evaluate the neutron capture reaction rate using the Talys code. The evaluted rates will be further processed offline using neural network to formulate the REACLIB-SOLNAR library we are constructing for the rapid neutron capture process simulations.
