Multicluster models consider that the nucleons can be moving around different centers in the nuclei. These models have been widely used to describe light nuclei but always considering that the mean field is composed of isotropic harmonic oscillators with different centers. In this work, we propose an extension of these models by using anisotropic harmonic oscillators. The strengths of these oscillators, the distance among the different centers and the disposition of the nucleons inside every…

A Molecular-Orbital Model of the Atomic Nuclei

A new nuclear model is proposed that describes the cluster and the shell structures unifiedly. By the present model one can investigate characteristics of one-particle orbitals in clustering states

Nuclear clustering using a modern shell model approach

Nuclear clustering, alpha decays, and multiparticle correlations are important components of nuclear dynamics. In this work we put forward the cluster-nucleon configuration interaction model. We use

Triple-α continuum structure and Hoyle resonance of C 12 using the hyperspherical slow variable discretization

We develop a method for calculating the bound and continuum energy spectrum of three particles interacting through both short-range and Coulomb potentials. Our method combines hyperspherical

Neutron-rich B isotopes studied with antisymmetrized molecular dynamics.

It is shown that the structure change with increase of the neutron number is largely governed by the shell effect of neutron orbits, giving an important indication that clustering structure in neutron-rich B nuclei is strongly suggested by the experimental data.
