Fifty years of nuclear BCS : pairing in finite systems by Vladimir Zelevinsky( )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This unique volume reviews more than fifty years of theoretical and experimental developments of the concept that properties of atomic nuclei up to a great extent are defined by the pair correlations of nuclear constituents -- protons and neutrons. Such correlations in condensed matter are responsible for quantum phenomena on a macroscopic level -- superfluidity and superconductivity. After introducing Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) theory of superconductivity of metals, it became clear that atomic nuclei have properties of superfluid drops, and practically all features of nuclei strongly depend on the pair correlations. Presenting a comprehensive overview of the progress of nuclear science, the contributions from leading physicists around the world, cover the whole spectrum of studies in nuclear physics and physics of other small systems. With the most updated information written in an accessible way, the volume will serve as an irreplaceable source of references covering many years of development and insight into several new problems at the frontiers of science. It will be useful not only for physicists working in nuclear and condensed matter physics, astrophysicists, chemists and historians of science, but will also help students understand the current status and perspectives for the future."--Publisher

One of the great unsolved problems of science and also of physics is the prediction of the three dimensional structure of a protein from its amino acid sequence. It may be stated that the deep connection existing between physics and protein folding is not so much, or in any case not only, through physical methods, but through physical concepts

Solid state physics of finite systems : metal clusters, fullerenes, atomic wires by R. A Broglia( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and German and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book surveys the physics of quantum, finite many-body systems which are the basis of nanostructures such as fullerenes and metal clusters. The ab initio techniques for describing the single-particle motion (electrons) and the collective degrees of freedom (plasmons and phonons) and their interaction are discussed in detail and applied to the study of phenomena such as the electromagnetic response and superconductivity of these systems. Built around current research and drawing upon lectures given to advanced undergraduates, the book will interest students, young researchers and practitioners in the fields of solid state and atomic physics and physical chemistry."--BOOK JACKET
Oscillations in finite quantum systems by George F Bertsch( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book surveys the physics of small clusters of particles undergoing vibrations, with applications in nuclear physics and the physics and chemistry of atomic clusters. The book begins with a survey of the experimental information on collective vibrations in atoms, metal clusters and nuclei. Next, the book goes on to develop theoretical tools to understand these findings. Special emphasis is placed on the Rayleigh-Ritz principle, the use of sum rules, and the quantum mechanics of mean field theory, known as "RPA". The important vibrational modes observed in the different systems are then discussed, including the dipole mode of oscillation (important in both nuclei and metal clusters), surface modes of higher polarity, and the compressional mode. In the last two chapters mechanisms for the damping of vibrational modes and the effects of excitation energy on the modes are described

Giant resonances : nuclear structure at finite temperature by P. F Bortignon( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2019 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a comprehensive introduction to the study of nuclear structure at finite temperature. By measuring the frequencies of the high-energy photons emitted or absorbed by an atomic nucleus it is possible to visualize the structure of that nucleus. In such experiments it is observed that the atomic nucleus displays resonant behavior, absorbing or emitting photons within a relatively narrow range of frequencies. To study emission processes one measures the y-decay of compound nuclei, and by this means it is possible to probe the structure of the nucleus at finite temperature. This book is divided into two main parts: the study of giant resonances based on the atomic nucleus ground state (zero temperature), and the study of the y-decay of giant resonances from compound (finite temperature) nuclei. As this work is an outgrowth of their lectures to fourth-year students at the University of Milan, the authors have placed special emphasis on the general concepts that form the foundation of the phenomenon of giant resonances. This basic subject matter is supplemented with material taken from worl< going on at the forefront of research on the structure of hot nuclei. Thus, this volume will serve as an essential reference for both young researchers and experienced practitioners

The Response of Nuclei under Extreme Conditions by R. A Broglia( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, a new field of nuclear research has been opened through the possibility of studying nuclei wi\h very large values of angular momentum, temperature, pressure and number of particles. This development has been closely associated with heavy ion reactions, since collisions between two heavy nuclei are especially effective in producing metastable compound systems with large angular momentum, and in transferring energy which is distributed over the whole nuclear volume. Under the strain of temperature and of the Coriolis and centrifugal forces, the nucleus displays structural changes which can be interpreted in terms of pairing and shape phase transit ions. This was the subject of the lectures of J.D. Garrett, P.J. Twin and S. Levit. While the rotational motion is, at zero temperature un damped, the width of giant resonances indicate that the nucleus only oscillates through few periods before the motion is damp ed by particle decay, and through coupling to the compound nucleus. Temperature and angular momentum influence in an im portant way the properties of both giant resonances and rotatio nal motion. These subjects were developed by K. Snover, and by P.F. Bortignon and R.A. Broglia, as well as by A. Bracco, A. Dellafiore and F. Matera

Heavy ion reactions : the elementary processes, part I and II by R. A Broglia( )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2019 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combining elastic and inelastic processes with transfer reactions, this two-part volume explores how these events affect heavy ion collisions. Special attention is given to processes involving the transfer of two nucleons, which are specific for probing pairing correlations in nuclei. This novel treatment provides, together with the description of surface vibration and rotations, a unified picture of heavy ion reactions in terms of the elementary modes of nuclear excitation. Heavy Ion Reactions is essential reading for beginning graduate students as well as experienced researchers
