ABSTRACT
Ten different theoretical models are tested for their predictive power in the description of nuclear masses. Two sets of experimental masses are used for the test: the older set of 2003 and the newer one of 2011. The predictive power is studied in two regions of nuclei: the global region (Z, N ⩾ 8) and the heavy-nuclei region (Z ⩾ 82, N ⩾ 126). No clear correlation is found between the predictive power of a model and the accuracy of its description of the masses.

    The No Core Shell Model (NCSM) is an ab initio method for calculating the properties of light nuclei, up to about A = 20, in which all A nucleons are treated as being active. It is difficult to go to larger A values due to the rapid grow of the basis spaces required in order to obtain converged...

    The shell model description of the nucleus and the magic numbers resulting from such an approach is one of the cornerstone of the nuclear structure. Nevertheless, the question of the persistence of the ‘spherical’ magic numbers in the very neutron-rich nuclei is highly debated. We...

    Masses of heaviest nuclei are calculated within a macroscopic-microscopic approach. Even-even, odd-A, and odd-odd nuclides are considered. A large region of nuclei with proton and neutron numbers of Z = 82-128 and N = 126-192, respectively, is analyzed. The results are compared with those of...

V.; MILLER, H. W. // International Journal of Modern Physics E: Nuclear Physics;Jan2010, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p131 

    Evidence for the possible existence of a superheavy nucleus with atomic mass number A = 292 and abundance of about 1×10-12 relative to 232Th has been found in a study of natural Th using inductively coupled plasma-sector field mass spectrometry. The measured mass is different from any...

    Ten different theoretical models are tested for their accuracy in description of nuclear masses. Recent experimental masses of 2011 are used for the tests. The accuracy is studied in three regions of the nuclear chart: global (all nuclei with Z, N ≥ 8), heavy (Z ≥ 82, N ≥ 126)...

    This contribution reviews the recent results of the experiments performed at SHIP in the field of K-isomer studies, where we aimed at a study of high K-structures in odd-mass nuclei. In particular the results from the study of multi-quasi-particle isomeric states in 253No and 255Lr will be...

    It will be shown that the peaks in the (Λ p) and (Λ d) invariant mass distributions, observed in recent FINUDA experiments and claimed to be signals of deeply bound kaonic states, are naturally explained in terms of K− absorption by two or three nucleons leaving the rest of the...

    The spectra, E2-transition probabilities and electric quadrupole moments of a series of known superheavy nuclei, with Z between 102 and 112 are analyzed within the non-adiabatic model of quadrupole deformed, axially-symmetric nuclei. Calculations are made assuming that the mass parameter and the...
