The new recurrence relation for magic numbers and some of its possible implications
MetadataShow full item record
We discuss the possible implications of the peculiar recurrence relation which we demonstrate to hold for the series of empirical magic numbers. These include thc space-wise shell structure of the nucleus in both the proton and neutron distributions which in beta-stable nuclei overlap completely, predictions of nuclear halos and skins, the new equation of the line of beta-stability. predictions for the beta-stable superheavy nuclei, the effects on the concept of nuclear matter, and a variation of the liquid drop model which partly conforms to such a view of the nucleus.
