NSCL Seminar Room

The atomic nucleus is a natural self-binding quantum many-body system where structure and stability are governed by an intricate interplay of quantum many-body interactions and the dynamics of the nuclear reaction continuum. In my presentation I will discuss the physics of decays and reactions involving unstable nuclei. I will demonstrate how a consistent simultaneous description of many-body structure and reactions can be obtained using the continuum shell model approach.
