Fifty Years of Nuclear BCS:Pairing in Finite Systems by Ricardo A Broglia,Vladimir Zelevinsky

By Ricardo A Broglia,Vladimir Zelevinsky

This detailed quantity studies greater than fifty years of theoretical and experimental advancements of the idea that houses of atomic nuclei as much as an exceptional quantity are outlined through the pair correlations of nuclear ingredients — protons and neutrons. Such correlations in condensed subject are chargeable for quantum phenomena on a macroscopic point — superfluidity and superconductivity. After introducing Bardeen–Cooper–Schrieffer (BCS) concept of superconductivity of metals, it turned transparent that atomic nuclei have houses of superfluid drops, and virtually all positive factors of nuclei strongly depend upon the pair correlations.

Presenting a finished assessment of the development of nuclear technological know-how, the contributions from top physicists all over the world, conceal the entire spectrum of stories in nuclear physics and physics of alternative small platforms. With the main up to date details written in an obtainable manner, the amount will function an irreplaceable resource of references masking decades of improvement and perception into numerous new difficulties on the frontiers of technology. will probably be invaluable not just for physicists operating in nuclear and condensed topic physics, astrophysicists, chemists and historians of technology, yet also will support scholars comprehend the present prestige and views for the future.
