Proxy-SU(3) symmetry is an approximation scheme extending the Elliott SU(3) algebra of the sd shell to heavier shells. When introduced in 2017, the approximation had been justified by calculations carried out within the Nilsson model. Recently our group managed to map the cartesian basis of the Elliott SU(3) model onto the spherical shell model basis, proving that the proxy-SU(3) approximation corresponds to the replacement of the intruder orbitals by their de Shalit-Goldhaber partners, paving…

Towards a shell model description of the low-energy structure of deformed nuclei I. Even-even systems
A microscopic shell model theory for the low-lying collective states of heavy deformed nuclei is described. Basis selection is guided by the Bohr-Mottelson-Nilsson picture of collective motion in
On the algebraic formulation of collective models III. The symplectic shell model of collective motion
Abstract The symplectic model is a microscopic theory which provides a practical technique for identifying the shell configurations necessary for the description of quadrupole and monopole vibrations
Shell-model description of the low-energy structure of strongly deformed nuclei
An effective fermion interaction of maximum particle rank four, comprised of operators which form the integrity basis of an SU(3)..-->..R(3) algebra, has been found sufficient to reproduce almost
Transformation to pseudo-spin-symmetry of a deformed Nilsson hamiltonian
Abstract The explicit form of the unitary operator connecting the normal parity Nilsson states, of a shell N , with the full set of eigenstates of a pseudodeformed oscillator is given. It is shown
Transformation to pseudo-SU (3) in heavy deformed nuclei
Abstract The explicit form of the unitary operator connecting the normal parity harmonic oscillator eigenstates with the full set of eigenstates of a pseudo-oscillator is determined. This operator is
Interacting two-vector-boson model of collective motions in nuclei
A boson representation of the Hamiltonian is introduced to describe collective motions in nuclei. Two interacting vector bosons differing in their 'pseudospin' projections are used. The non-compact
Exact boson mappings for nuclear neutron (proton) shell-model algebras having SU(3) subalgebras
In this paper the commutation relations of the fermion pair operators of identical nucleons coupled to spin zero are given for the general nuclear major shell in LST coupling. The associated Lie
Rotational limit of the interacting two-vector boson model
The rotational limit of the interacting two-vector-boson model is investigated. This limit arises if the Hamiltonian is 'pseudospin' invariant and corresponds to the following reduction chain of

Prolate over oblate dominance in deformed nuclei as a consequence of the SU(3) symmetry and the Pauli principle
Abstract.We show that the dominance of prolate over oblate shapes in even-even deformed nuclei can be derived from the SU(3) symmetry and the Pauli principle.
