We investigate the elastic scattering of \(^9\)Be on \(^{208}\)Pb at beam energies above (50 MeV) and below (40 MeV) the Coulomb barrier. The reaction is described within a four-body framework using the Continuum-Discretized Coupled-Channels (CDCC) method. The \(^9\)Be projectile states are generated using the analytical Transformed Harmonic Oscillator (THO) basis in hyperspherical coordinates. Our calculations confirm the importance of continuum effects at low energies. 


Four-body continuum-discretized coupled-channels calculations using a transformed harmonic oscillator basis
The scattering of a weakly bound three-body system by a target is discussed. A transformed harmonic oscillator basis is used to provide an appropriate discrete and finite basis for treating the
Astrophysical reaction rate for Be 9 formation within a three-body approach
The structure of the Borromean nucleus $^9$Be ($\alpha+\alpha+n$) is addressed within a three-body approach using the analytical transformed harmonic oscillator method. The three-body formalism
Low-energy Be 9 + Pb 208 scattering, breakup, and fusion within a four-body model
In low-energy reactions weakly bound stable and exotic nuclei tend to break up. Therefore, a successful description must properly treat the break-up channels. This work successfully follows the
