Interplay between one-particle and collective degrees of freedom in nuclei

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Some developments of nuclear-structure physics uniquely related to Copenhagen School are sketched based on theoretical considerations versus experimental findings and one-particle versus collective aspects. Based on my personal overview I pick up the following topics; (1) Study of vibration in terms of particle-vibration coupling; (2) one-particle motion in deformed and rotating potentials, and yrast spectroscopy in high-spin physics; (3) triaxial shape in nuclei: wobbling motion and chiral bands; (4) nuclear structure of drip line nuclei: in particular, shellstructure (or magic numbers) change and spherical or deformed halo phenomena; (5) shell structure in oblate deformation.
