Calculations using realistic mean-field methods suggest the existence of nuclear shapes with tetrahedral Td and/or octahedral Oh symmetries sometimes at only a few hundreds of keV above the ground states in some rare earth nuclei around 156Gd and 160Yb. The underlying single-particle spectra manifest exotic fourfold rather than Kramers's twofold… (More)
Received Revised We discuss a point-group-theory based method of searching for new regions of nuclear stability. We illustrate the related strategy with realistic calculations employing the tetrahedral and the octahedral point groups. In particular, several nuclei in the Rare Earth region appear as excellent candidates to study the new mechanism.
SU(N) Yang-Mills theories, which are expected to describe the strong interaction in the case N = 3, are one of the most studied models in theoretical physics. While their asymptotic UV behavior is well under control thanks to asymptotic freedom, the need of non-perturbative techniques to describe the IR behavior has rapidly appeared to be mandatory. The… (More)
