Conclusions

Conclusions

ground state, , first and second excited K = 0+ bands well described by a few representations

  • calculated results in good agreement with the low-energy spectra

  • B(E2) transitions within the g.s. band well

  • reproduced

  • 1+ energies fall in the correct energy range

  • fragmentation in the B(M1) transition probabilities correctly predicted

Gabriela Popa


Conclusions1

Conclusions

  • A microscopic interpretation of the relative position of the collective band, as well as that of the levels within the band, follows from an evaluation of the primary SU(3) content of the collective states. The latter are closely linked to nuclear deformation.

    • If the leading configuration is triaxial (nonzero ), the ground and  bands belong to the same SU(3) irrep;

    • if the leading SU(3) configuration is axial (=0), the K =0 and  bands come from the same SU(3) irrep.

  • A proper description of collective properties of the first excited K = 0+andK=2+states must take into account the mixing of different SU(3)-irreps, which is driven by the Hamiltonian.

Gabriela Popa


Future work

Future work

  • In some nuclei total strength of the M1 distribution

  • is larger than the experimental value

  • Consider the states with J = 1 in the configuration space

  • Consider the abnormal parity levels

  • There are new experiments that determine the inter-band B(E2) transitions

  • Improve the model to calculate these transitions

  • Investigate the M1 transitions in light nuclei

  • Investigate the energy spectra in super-heavy nuclei
