  • Abstract What are the limits of the existence of nuclei? What are the highest proton numbers Z at which the nuclear landscape and periodic table of chemical elements cease to exist? These deceivably simple questions are difficult to answer especially in the region of hyperheavy ( Z ≥ 126 ) nuclei. We present the covariant density functional study of different aspects of the existence and stability of hyperheavy nuclei. For the first time, we demonstrate the existence of three regions of… CONTINUE READING
