The role of shell evolution in shape coexistence

Abstract

We first review the shell evolution in exotic nuclei driven by nuclear forces. We then demonstrate that the underlying mechanism played by the balance of the tensor and central components in the effective nucleon–nucleon interaction is crucial when describing shape coexistence. This effect will be referred to as type II shell evolution, while the shell… (More)
