The potential-energy-surface has been calculated using a method developed in a previous paper. Two regions of relative stability against spontaneous fission aroundZ=114 andZ=164 are discussed in greater detail. The stability of the quasistable elements against fission is discussed and the stability against alpha- and beta-decay is estimated by using the mass formula of Myers-Swiatecki. It is found that quasistable elements should exist in the regions aroundZ=114 andZ=164. 

Predictions for Superheavy Nuclei

The Dynamic Deformation Model has been extended to the problem of fission in such a way that several thousand channels including particle-decay, α-decay, heavy-ion-emission, asymmetric fission, and

Search for Superheavy Nuclei

We describe the discoveries of new superheavy nuclei (a) with Z=107–112 produced in cold fusion reactions between 208Pb and 209Bi and beams of A > 50 and (b) with Z=113–118 in hot fusion reactions

Extension of the periodic system in the sectors of strangeness and antimatter

SummaryThe extension of the known periodic system into new regions is discussed. One direction is the extrapolation to large mass numbers,i.e. the predicted island of superheavy nuclei. The


Potential energy surfaces corresponding to the alpha accompanied ternary fragmentation in superheavy mass region have been investigated. The lowest value of potential energy is found for the

New outlook on the possible existence of superheavy elements in nature

A consistent interpretation is given to some previously unexplained phenomena seen in nature in terms of the recently discovered long-lived high-spin super-and hyperdeformed isomeric states. The Po

Model Calculations on the Influence of Quantum Electrodynamical Effects on the Chemistry of Superheavy Elements. The Chemistry of Element E184

Using a phenomenological model, the influence of quantum electrodynamical effects on the prediction of the chemical behavior of superheavy elements within a relativistic Dirac‐Slater calculation was

Developments in fission, fusion, clusterradioactivity and the extension of the periodic system of elements

SummaryThe extension of the periodic system into various new areas is investigated. Experiments for the synthesis of superheavy elements and the predictions of magic numbers are reviewed. Different

Shape coexistence and α-decay chains of 293Lv

Two recently observed 293Lv (Z = 116) α-decay chains [Eur. Phys. J. A 48, 62 (2012)] are investigated in the framework of covariant density functional theory with PC-PK1, where the pairing
