Abstract content <br> &nbsp; (Max 300 words)

Four-body breakup processes at astrophysical energies are crucial in understanding dynamical properties of weakly bound nuclei. In this work we calculate cross-sections for four-body reactions involving light nuclei such as 6He on heavy nuclei via the Faddeev-Yakubovsky formalism, as well as the astrophysical factor for the 7Be(p,gamma)8B accurately. The results obtained are in agreement with other competing methods and in good agreement with experimental data.
