Quantum Monte Carlo methods have proved very valuable to study the structure and reactions of light nuclei and nucleonic matter starting from realistic nuclear interactions and currents. These abinitio calculations reproduce many lowlying states and transition moments in light nuclei, and simultaneously predict many properties of light nuclei and neutron matter over a rather wide range of energy and momenta. We review the nuclear interactions and currents, and describe the continuum Quantum Monte Carlo methods used in nuclear physics. These methods are similar to those used in condensed matter and electronic structure but naturally include spinisospin, tensor, spinorbit, and threebody...

By analysing the sizefrequenq, distributions of large cosmic ray bursts obtained at three stations by SRI ion chambers, it is concluded that: a) about 40 % of the total bursts at sea level are those induced by Nrays, and the portion of them decreases with increasing size, b) apsorption mean free path of burstproducing Nrays is 120 g/cm2 in air, and decreases with increasing size, approaching to collision mean free path of air. Moreover, from the comparison of our results with others, it is shown that the absorption mean free path of burstproducing Nrays near sea level is not same...

Characteristic aspects of pioncondensed phases are described in a simple model, for the system involving only nucleons and pions which interact through the TC N Pwave interaction. We consider one typical version in each of three kinds of pion condensation; the one of neutral pions (TC0), the one of charged pions (TCc) and the combined one in which both the TC 0 and TCc condensations are coexistent. Emphasis is put on the description to clarify the novel structures of the nucleon system which are realized in the pioncondensed phases. At first, it is shown that the TC0 condensation is equivalent...

We study the reaction cross sections of "Li projectile on various targets at high projectile energy E1ab/A=800 MeV. The cross section due to the nucleonic interaction is calculated by using a simple Glauber model, while that due to the electromagnetic interaction is obtained by assuming the breakup process through the giant dipole resonance of the projectile. The small separation energy of two neutrons outside 9Li core enhances significantly both the cross sections of "Li projectile, especially on heavy targets. The calculated cross sections reproduce fairly well the experimental data except Pb case. The calculations are also perlormed in a medium...

The nuclear meaneld theory and the group representation theory can be used to optimise the search for strong nuclear shell eects. The two theories allow to correlate the symmetry aspects with the presence of large gaps in the singleparticle spectra, facilitate in this way the conditions of search for strong nucleonic and nuclearbinding and thus for an increased nuclear stability. In this article we give a short overview of the related ongoing research, focussing on the results of the TetraNuc Collaboration. 1.

We examine what is required for the structure of elementary particles by the second class nucleonic currents which was recently discovered by Sugimoto et al. The experiment strongly suggests that the quark has a radius of a few tenth of fermi and the partons are constituents of quarks. We discuss briefly a possible internal structure of the quark. § 1. Important experiment Recently Sugimoto, Tanihata and Goring performed a very important experiment on 11decays of nuclei. 1l The data show that the /3 ray angular distribution in the 11 decays of polarized 12B and 12N(JP=1 +) into 12C(JP=O+) cannot be...

Abstract. We study the stopping in heavyion induced reactions around the Fermi energy in central collisions. The stopping is minimal around the Fermi energy and corresponds to the crossover between the MeanField and the nucleonic regimes. This is attributed to the change in the energy dissipation going from 1body (MeanField) to 2body (nucleonnucleon collisions) dissipation. For this latter, a connection to inmedium transport properties of nuclear matter is proposed and comprehensive values of the nucleon mean free path and nucleonnucleon cross section are extracted. 1

The effects of elementary excitations to the nature of dense solid nuclear matter are investigated using the Pandharipande·Smith (PS) potentials. A trial wave function embodying a simple cubic structure of nucleonic lattice leads to the Hamiltonian describing the dynamics of lattice vibrations (or phonons) spin·waves (or magnons) and isospin·waves (or 'isomagnons'). Magnons and isomagnons are treated as the Holstein·Primakoff bosons. In the density range from around 0.3 to 1 nucleons/fm3, the dynamics of phonons approximately reproduces the equations of state for PS's potentials 2 and 3. At the lowest order of perturbations, due to the tensor interaction, magnon has an...

For more than fifty years, it has been believed that cosmic ray (CR) nuclei are accelerated to high energies in the rapidly expanding shockwaves created by powerful supernova explosions. Yet observational proof of this conjecture is still lacking. Recently, Uchiyama and collaborators reported the detection of smallscale Xray flares in one such supernova remnant, dubbed “RX J17133946 ” (a.k.a. G347.30.5), which also emits very energetic, TeV (1012 eV) range, gammarays. They contend that the variability of these Xray “hotspots ” implies that the magnetic field in the remnant is about a hundred times larger than normally assumed; and this, they...

Abstract A=3 is the lightest genuine “nucleus ” with an “inside ” with a centre and an outside/surface. As A=2 nucleus does not have an “inside ” what transpires in A=3 to make this happen? The hole in the charge distribution of 3He is a major problem in the A=3 nuclei. The canonical wave function of A=3 nuclei which does well fo r the electromagnetic p roperties of A=3 nuclei fails to produce the hole in A=3 nuclei. We show that this wave function does give the surface while the “inside ” is completely missed by it. The reproduction of...

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is an important f ield in mechanical engineering, and also gives physicians interests especially for vascular practices recently. Since the 1950s, CFD is widely utilized in various fields not only in mechanical engineering but also in aeromechanics, marine engineering, civil engineering, meteorological dynamics, environmental engineering, nucleonic and medical engineering. NavierStokes ’ (NS) equation is usually used for analysis of viscous and compressible fluid such as blood [1]. With the advance of computational science, a nonlinear NS equation is easy put into practice in CFD analysis instead of the linear NS equation, which converts the variable boundary...

Abstract. Deepinelastic scattering (DIS) from a tensor polarized deuteron is sensitive to possible nonnucleonic components of the deuteron wave function. To accurately estimate the size of the nucleonic contribution, finalstate interactions (FSIs) need to be accounted for in calculations. We outline a model that, based on the diffractive nature of the effective hadron–nucleon interaction, uses the generalized eikonal approximation to model the FSIs in the resonance region, taking into account the protonneutron component of the deuteron. The calculation uses a factorized model with a basis of three resonances with mass W < 2 GeV as the relevant set of effective...

The recent x> 1 (e,e’) and correlation experiments at momentum transfer Q2 ≥ 2 GeV2 confirm presence of shortrange correlations (SRC) in nuclei mostly build of nucleons. Recently we evaluated in a model independent way the dominant photon contribution to the nuclear structure. Taking into account this effect and using definition of x consistent with the exact kinematics of eA scattering (with exact sum rules) results in the significant reduction of RA(x,Q 2) = F2A(x,Q 2)/F2N (x,Q 2) ratio which explains ∼ 50 % of the EMC effect for x ≤ 0.55 where Fermi motion effects are small. The remaining...

We have developed an algorithm to imprint quantum fluctuations onto the initial transverse energy density profile according to a given twopoint covariance function. Using as an example MCKLN initial conditions with added fluctuations satisfying the covariance function derived in [1], we find that effects from subnucleonic gluon field fluctuations on the eccentricity harmonics n vary strongly with the gluonic correlation length controlled by the saturation momentum Qs. Varying Qs over the range probed in Au+Au collisions at RHIC, we find gluon fluctuation induced enhancements of the eccentricity coefficients ranging from 10 to 20 % in central collisions. 1. Eventbyevent fluctuations...

Abstract. In the past decade, coupledcluster theory has seen a renaissance in nuclear physics, with computations of neutronrich and mediummass nuclei. The method is efficient for nuclei with productstate references, and it describes many aspects of weakly bound and unbound nuclei. This report reviews the technical and conceptual developments of this method in nuclear physics, and the results of coupledcluster calculations for nucleonic matter, and for exotic isotopes of helium, oxygen, calcium, and some of their neighbors.

Abstract. We review recent developments in the use of renormalization group (RG) methods in lowenergy nuclear physics. These advances include enhanced RG technology, particularly for threenucleon forces, which greatly extends the reach and accuracy of microscopic calculations. We discuss new results for the nucleonic equation of state with applications to astrophysical systems such as neutron stars, new calculations of the structure and reactions of finite nuclei, and new explorations of correlations in nuclear systems.

Neutrinonuclear responses in the form of squares of nuclear matrix elements, NMEs, are crucial for studies of neutrinoinduced processes in nuclei. In this work we investigate magnetic hexadecapole (M4) NMEs in mediumheavy nuclei. The experimentally derived NMEs, MEXP(M4), deduced from observed M4 γ transition halflives are compared with the singlequasiparticle (QP) NMEs, MQP(M4), and the microscopic quasiparticlephonon model (MQPM) NMEs MMQPM(M4). The experimentally derived M4 NMEs are found to be reduced by a coefficient k≈0.29 with respect to MQP(M4) and by k≈0.33 with respect to MMQPM(M4). The M4 NMEs are reduced a little by the quasiparticlephonon correlations of the MQPM...

The evolution of shapes and shape (phase) transitions, including regions of shortlived exotic nuclei that are becoming accessible in experiments at radioactivebeam facilities, are governed by the shell structure of singlenucleon orbitals. In most cases the transition between different shapes is gradual but in a number of examples, with the addition or subtraction of only few nucleons, signatures of abrupt changes in observables are noticed. A quantitative analysis necessitates accurate modelling of the underlying nucleonic dynamics. Important advances have been reported in theoretical studies of complex shapes, especially in the “beyond meanfield” framework based on density functionals.
