Nuclear structure Physics connects to some of our fundamental questions about the creation of universe and its basic constituents. At the same time, precise knowledge on the subject has lead to develop many important tools of human kind such as proton therapy, radioactive dating etc. This book contains chapters on some of the crucial and trending research topics in nuclear structure, including the nuclei lying on the extremes of spin, isospin and mass. A better theoretical understanding of these topics is important beyond the confines of the nuclear structure community. Additionally, the book will showcase the applicability and success of the different nuclear effective interaction parameters near the drip line, where hints for level reordering have already been seen, and where one can test the isospin-dependence of the interaction.

The book offers comprehensive coverage of the most essential topics, including:

• Nuclear Structure of Nuclei at or Near Drip-Lines

• Synthesis challenges and properties of Superheavy nuclei

• Nuclear Structure and Nuclear models - Ab-initio calculations, cluster models, Shell-model/DSM, RMF, Skyrme

• Shell Closure, Magicity and other novel features of nuclei at extremes

• Structure of Toroidal, Bubble Nuclei, halo and other exotic nuclei

These topics are not only very interesting from theoretical nuclear physics perspective but are also quite complimentary for ongoing nuclear physics experimental program worldwide. It is hoped that the book chapters written by experienced and well known researchers/experts will be helpful for the master students, graduate students and researchers and serve as a standard & uptodate research reference book on the topics covered.

Acerca do autor (2020)

Dr. Amritanshu Shukla earned his Master's degree in Physics from University of Lucknow (1999) and his Ph.D. in Physics from IIT Kharagpur (2005), and did his postdoctoral work at Institute of Physics Bhubaneswar (under the Department of Atomic Energy, Govt. of India); University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, USA; University of Rome, Italy; and Physical Research Laboratory Ahmedabad (under the Department of Space, Govt. of India). Currently, he is an Associate Professor in Physics and is also the Head of Division at Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology (RGIPT) (set up through an Act of Parliament by the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas, Govt. of India as an \Institute of National Importance" on the lines of IITs). The institute is co-promoted as an energy domain-specific institute by six leading PSUs (Public sector undertakings)|ONGC Ltd., IOCL, OIL, GAIL, BPCL, and HPCL in association with OIDB. The mission of the institute is to promote energy self-sufficiency in the country through its teaching and R&D efforts.

His research interests include theoretical physics, nuclear physics, and physics of renewable energy systems. He has published about 100 research articles in various international journals and conference proceedings of national and international repute. Currently, he is working on the different problems in nuclear structure and nuclear reactions with a special focus on bubble nuclei, drip-line nuclei, and superheavy nuclei. He is also supervising several research students, actively involved in a number of sponsored research projects, and having several national as well as international active research collaborations from India and abroad on the topics of his research interests.

Prof. Suresh Kumar Patra is a well-known Indian Theoretical Nuclear Physicist. He earned his Ph.D. (Theoretical Nuclear Physics) from Institute of Physics, India. After his Ph.D., he has done postdoctoral studies at Tohoku University (Japan), J.W. Goethe University (Germany), Chung Yuan Christian University (Taiwan), University of Barcelona (Spain), and University of Surrey (U.K.). He also had short visits to other reputed universities for collaborative research work and to give lectures. Currently, he is a Professor at Institute of Physics, Bhubaneswar. Prof. Patra has a wide-ranging expertise in various areas of nuclear physics, such as nuclear structure, nuclear reaction, and nuclear astrophysics. He has contributed considerably to the structure of exotic and superheavy nuclei, nucleus{nucleus reaction for both beta-stable and beta-unstable nuclei, and structure of neutron stars and gravitational waves from their merger. He has published about 170 research articles in international peer-reviewed journals, more than 13 book chapters, and about 160 contributions to various national/international symposiums/workshops and is the co-editor of several conference proceedings. He has also served as the organizer/advisory member of various national/international symposiums/workshops and the referee of various journals. He has guided more than 16 Ph.D. and 8 postdoctoral scholars.
