Microscopic description of weakly-bound/unbound nuclei

A lot of progress have been made recently in the development of radioactive beams and remote parts of the nuclear
chart which were previously out of reach experimentally can now be explored. The nuclei located in these regions i.e. in the vicinity
or beyond the neutron (proton) drip-line, have very different properties from the well-bound systems in the valley of stability.
The presence of weakly-bound states, halo structures and strong coupling to the continuum are typical features of these exotic nuclei
and require new theories to describe them.
During my talk, I will present microscopic models based on the Shell Model formalism in which, the coupling
with the continuum is taken into account to describe nuclei in these remote regions.
I will show applications of these formalisms to exotic decay (two-proton radioactivity) and the study of the structure
of nuclei close/beyond the neutron drip-line (Helium isotopes).
