Proceedings of the Highly Specialized Seminar on Symmetries in Nuclear Structure : an occasion to celebrate the 60th birthday of Francesco Iachello, Erice, Italy, 23-30 March, 2003 by Highly Specialized Seminar on Symmetries in Nuclear Structure( )

12 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The highly specialized seminar on "Symmetries in Nuclear Structure", held in Erice, Italy, in March 2003, celebrated the career and the remarkable achievements of Francesco Iachello, on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Since the development of the interacting boson model in the early 1970s, the ideas of Iachello have provided a variety of frameworks for understanding collective behaviour in nuclear structure, founded on the concepts of dynamical symmetries and spectrum-generating algebras. The original ideas, which were developed for the description of atomic nuclei, have now been successfully extended to cover spectroscopic behaviour in other fields, such as molecular or hadronic spectra. More recently, the suggestion by Iachello of critical point symmetries to treat nuclei in shape/phase transitional regions has opened an exciting new front for both theoreticians and experimentalists. The talks presented at the meeting covered many of the most active forefront areas of nuclear structure as well as other fields where ideas of symmetries are being explored. Topics in nuclear structure included extensive discussions on dynamical symmetries, critical point symmetries, phase transitions, statistical properties of nuclei, supersymmetry, mixed symmetry states, shears bands, pairing and clustering in nuclei, shape coexistence, exotic nuclei, dipole modes, and astrophysics, among others. In addition, important sessions focused on talks by European laboratory directors (or their representatives) outlining prospects for nuclear structure, and the application of symmetry ideas to molecular phenomena. Finally, a special lecture by Nobel laureate Alex Mueller, on s and d wave symmetry in superconductors, presented a unique insight into an allied field
International Symposium on Nuclear Structure Physics : celebrating the career of Peter von Brentano : University of Göttingen, Germany, 5-8 March 2001 by Peter von Brentano( )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 1,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nuclear structure physics is undergoing a major revival, full of activities and excitement. On the experimental side, this is being made possible by advances in detector technology and accelerator capabilities that give access to data and nuclei (especially exotic nuclei far from stability) never before accessible. On the theoretical side, new concepts, ideas and computational techniques are advancing our understanding of effective interactions, nucleonic correlations, and symmetries of structure. This volume covers a broad range of topics on nuclear structure, including collective excitations, proton-neutron excitation modes, phase transitions, signatures of structure, isospin, structure at both high and low angular momenta, recent developments in nuclear theory, the vast new realm of exotic nuclei far from the valley of stability, and the latest technological advances of detectors and facilities which will lead this branch of physics into the future

The International Conference on Contemporary Topics in Nuclear Structure Physics was held in Cocoyoc, Mexico, June 9-14, 1988. The aim of the conference was to bring together scientists reflecting the diversity of contemporary nuclear structure physics and to enhance mutual understanding. Five general areas of current research was emphasized: Shell model and fundamental studies; High spin physics; Algebraic models; Collective phenomena; and Nuclei far off stability

Surrogate Nuclear Reactions using STARS( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The results from two surrogate reaction experiments using the STARS (Silicon Telescope Array for Reaction Studies) spectrometer are presented. The surrogate method involves measuring the particle and/or {gamma}-ray decay probabilities of excited nuclei populated via a direct reaction. These probabilities can then be used to deduce neutron-induced reaction cross sections that lead to the same compound nuclei. In the first experiment STARS coupled to the GAMMASPHERE {gamma}-ray spectrometer successfully reproduce surrogate (n, {gamma}), (n, n'{gamma}) and (n,2n{gamma}) cross sections on {sup 155,156}Gd using Gd {sup 3}He-induced reactions. In the second series of experiments an energetic deuteron beam from the ESTU tandem at the Wright Nuclear Structure Lab at Yale University was used to obtain the ratio of fission probabilities for {sup 238}U/ {sup 236}U and {sup 237}U/ {sup 239}U populated using the {sup 236,238}U(d, d'f) and {sup 236,238}U(d, pf) reactions. Results from these experiments are presented and the implications for the surrogate reaction technique are discussed
