Quantifying the Limits of the (d, p) Reaction Theories

Thursday, February 28, 9:30 AM - Special Seminar
4129 Conference Room

The cross sections of reactions in stellar nucleosynthesis are substantially determined by the properties of the exotic nuclei. The (d,p) reactions are perfect tool to study nature of single particle states from which structure information of the exotic nucleus can be obtained. In order to get reliable and accurate information, it is important that the uncertainties and limitations of the available reaction theories are better understood and quantified. Efforts in this direction and resulting conclusions will be presented in the talk.
