Content • Introduction of Projected Shell Model (PSM) • Framework of Heavy Shell Model (HSM) • Results • Conclusions
Nuclei calculated and the parameters Monopole and quadrupole force: Quadrupole and hexadecapole deformation: comes from:
Conclusion • The D0 and D2 pairs which are introduced into the intrinsic space are linear combinations of 2-qp bases and their collectivity are shown by the corresponding distributions. • The calculated ground band for each nucleus fits well with the experimental data and there are no large deviations between the calculated and bands and the observed ones. At the same time, the 2-phonon bands are predicted, also some single-particle bands are predicted and compared with the experimental bands. • The intra-band E2 transition rates fit well with the experimental values and the inter-band ones also make sense. • According to S(J)-benchmarks, 232Th does not have a stable axially symmetric shape, in contrast, 230Th ,234,236U and 240Pu has very stable axially shapes.
