Review Paper: F-max

Important nuclei from sensitivity studies given criterion $F_{max} \ge 0.1$ for at least one astrophysical condition: (a) low entropy hot wind, (b) high entropy hot wind, (c) cold wind and (d) neutron star merger. Asterisk denotes $F_{max}$ below threshold of $0.01$. Dash denotes nucleus was not in the study. Data associated with the 2016 $r$-process review paper.
