Absorption lines of some actinides, namely, actinium (Z = 89), protactinium (91), neptunium (93), plutonium (94), americium (95), curium (96), berkelium (97), californium (98), and einsteinium (99), were identified in the spectrum of one of the most peculiar main-sequence stars HD 101065 (Przybylski’s star). In the identification we used a high-resolution spectrum (R = 80 000) acquired at the 8.2-m ESO telescope. 
Actinium Abundance in the Atmospheres of Three Red Supergiants in the Magellanic Clouds
The actinium abundance in the atmospheres of red supergiants PMMR23 and PMMR144 in the Small Magellanic Cloud and RM_1-667 in the Large Magellanic Cloud was estimated. The results of spectral
Theoretical study of the electron structure of superheavy elements with an open 6d shell: Sg, Bh, Hs, and Mt
We use recently developed efficient versions of the configuration interaction method to perform ab initio calculations of the spectra of superheavy elements seaborgium (Sg, $Z=106$), bohrium (Bh,
Atomic structure calculations of superheavy noble element oganesson (Z=118)
We calculate the spectrum and allowed $E1$ transitions of the superheavy element Og ($Z=118$). A combination of configuration interaction and perturbation theory is used [Dzuba et al., Phys. Rev. A
Colloquium : Superheavy elements: Oganesson and beyond
During the last decade, six new superheavy elements were added into the seventh period of the periodic table, with the approval of their names and symbols. This milestone was followed by proclaiming
Saturated-configuration-interaction calculations for five-valent Ta and Db
Accurate atomic structure calculations of complicated atoms with 4 or more valence electrons begin to push the memory and time limits of supercomputers. This paper presents a robust method of
Isotope shift, nonlinearity of King plots, and the search for new particles
We derive a mean-field relativistic formula for the isotope shift of an electronic energy level for arbitrary angular momentum; we then use it to predict the spectra of superheavy metastable
Study on particle and cluster decay of superheavy nuclei Z = 130–144 using Cubic plus Proximity potential with improved transfer matrix method
The one-proton emission, alpha decay and cluster decay using a Cubic Plus Proximity model with improved transfer-matrix method are executed for the first time for the study of decay properties of 368
Neutron stardust and the elements of Earth
At its inception, the periodic table sorted elements by weight, so it may be surprising that the heaviest natural element on Earth remains controversial, or at best, nebulous. In the strange,
A systematic study on α-decay chains of superheavy nuclei, Z = 126 & 138
The α-decay chain of 314−340126 and 350−400138 is studied using cubic plus proximity potential with improved transfer matrix (CPP-ITM) model. The nuclear mass models DD-PC1, WS4, WS3.3 are employed...
Calculation of atomic properties of superheavy elements Z=110–112 and their ions
We calculate the spectra, electric dipole transition rates and isotope shifts of the super heavy elements Ds (Z=110), Rg (Z=111) and Cn (Z=112) and their ions. These calculations were performed using


On the radioactive shells in peculiar main sequence stars: the phenomenon of Przybylski's star.
Using high-dispersion spectral observations of HD 101065 (Przybylski's star) we have identified the lines of heavy radioactive elements with atomic numbers from 84 to 99 in the spectrum of the star.

Abundances in Przybylski's star
We have derived abundances for 54 elements in the extreme roAp star HD 101065. ESO spectra with a resolution of about 80 000, and S/N of 200 or more were employed. The adopted model has Teff=6600 K,
