Abstract: The standard theory of nuclear fusion rates in a strongly interacting plasmacan be correctly derived only when the energy release, Q, is large comparedto other energies in the problem. We exhibit a result for rates that provides abasis for calculating the finite Q corrections. Crude estimates indicate asignificant defect in the conventional results for some regions of high densityand strong plasma coupling. We also lay some groundwork for a path integralcalculation of the new effects.
