The Approximation in IBA: Odd-mass Xe & Te
- Olaf Scholten, University of Groningen, The Netherlands
Tuesday, May 29, 11:00 AM - Theory Seminar
NSCL Seminar Room
The microscopic basis of the Interacting Boson Approximation (IBA) for the description of
low-lying collective states in (medium) heavy nuclei is reviewed. It will be emphasized that the
IBA should be regarded as an eective model where in particular the application to odd mass
nuclei is discussed. Application to the calculation of single particle transfer and single- and double-beta decay will be mentioned.
