Theoretical Nuclear Structure Physics
Topics
of interest in the field of nuclear structure theory are various
aspects of nuclear dynamics, especially in the limit of high
angular momentum (rapidly rotating nuclei), far from betastability
lines (dripline nuclei) and at high temperature (hot nuclei).
Examples of phenomena studied are oneparticle shell structure,
exotic shapes (superdeformation, triaxial deformation, octupole
deformation, and C4symmetry deformation), various kinds of giant
resonances, lowlying vibrations, betadecays, particle emission,
nuclear masses and deformations as well as chaotic behaviour of
nuclear systems. The shell structure of clusters of metallic atoms,
regarded as a manyfermion system, is studied using techniques
developed in the study of nuclear structure. The research is to a
large extent carried out in international collaborations with both
theorists and experimentalists. Thus we keep close contact with
experimental groups at Niels Bohr Institute, Tallahasse, Oak Ridge,
Stony Brook, Strasbourg, GANIL, CEN and ISN Grenoble, Knoxville and
Nashville, CERN, GSI, Cologne, Legnaro, and RIKEN.
