A new code for the deconvolution of complex alpha-particle spectra, called ALFITeX, has been developed. The procedure is based on the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm, with the curve fitting being the mathematical function formed by the convolution of a Gaussian with two left-handed exponential curves in the low-energy-tail region. ALFITeX has been checked with its application to the calculation of the alpha-particle emission probabilities of several nuclides.

    The problem of existence of bounded relativistic fermion states in a spherically symmetric well of finite depth in a two-dimensional space is investigated. The well depth critical for the appearance of standard states with energies E = m, 0, and - m is determined; moreover, cases with zero and...
