Application of realistic effective interactions to the structure of the Zr isotopes


The Zr isotopes undergo a clear and smooth shape transition with increasing neutron number. The isotopes which are displayed in Figure 1(a) span from pure spherical nuclei that can be described in terms of simple shell-model configurations to the strongly deformed nucleus Zr. Evidence for coexisting shapes has been reported around Zr [1–4]. In the… (More)
