  journal={Physical Review C},
A dynamical study of the decay of a metastable state by quantum tunneling through an anisotropic, nonseparable, two-dimensional potential barrier is performed by the numerical solution of the time-dependent Schr{umlt o}dinger equation. Initial quasistationary proton states are chosen in the framework of a deformed Woods-Saxon single-particle model. The decay of two sets of states corresponding to true and quasi-level-crossing is studied and the evolution of their decay properties as a function…

Two-fermion emission from spin-singlet and triplet resonances in one dimension
Time-dependent calculation has been a suitable method to investigate the quantum dynamical processes. In Ref. [1] = [T. Oishi et al., J. of Phys. G 45, 105101 (2018)], we applied this method to the
One- and Two-Proton Radioactivity
For many years one-proton radioactivity studies have been a powerful tool to investigate nuclear structure close to the proton drip line. In many cases, they are the only means to give access to
Protonic decay of oriented nuclei
On the basis of the multiparticle theory of protonic decay, the angular distributions of protons emitted by oriented spherical and deformed nuclei in the laboratory frame and in the internal


Semi-classical methods for nucleus-nucleus scattering
During recent years many countries have constructed large accelerators for investigating heavy ion collisions, and new theoretical techniques for analysing results and making predictions have been
