This paper is the first of two parts presenting the result of a new evaluation of atomic masses (Ame2003). In this first part we give full information on the used and rejected input data and on the procedures used in deriving the tables in the…

The authors review the present status of selfconsistent meanfield (SCMF) models for describing nuclear structure and lowenergy dynamics. These models are presented as effective energydensity functionals. The three most widely used variants of…

This comprehensive text provides an introduction to basic nuclear physics, including nuclear decays and reactions and nuclear structure, while covering the essential areas of basic research and practical applications. Its emphasis on phenomonology…

The theoretical and experimental issues relevant to neutrinoless doublebeta decay are reviewed. The impact that a direct observation of this exotic process would have on elementary particle physics, nuclear physics, astrophysics and cosmology is…

Adopted values for the reduced electric quadrupole transition probability, B(E2)up arrow, from the ground state to the firstexcited 2(+) state of eveneven nuclides are given in Table I. Values of ir, the mean life of the 2(+) state; E, the energy;…

In this paper, we calculate the stable WignerSeitz (WS) cells in the inner crust of neutron stars and we discuss the nuclear shell effects. A distinction is done between the shell effects due to the bound states and those induced by the unbound…

The rprocess, or the rapid neutroncapture process, of stellar nucleosynthesis is called for to explain the production of the stable (and some longlived radioactive) neutronrich nuclides heavier than iron that are observed in stars of various…

We present a new highquality nucleonnucleon potential with explicit charge dependence and charge asymmetry, which we designate Argonne $v_{18}$. The model has a chargeindependent part with fourteen operator components that is an updated version…

This paper presents the Nubase evaluation of nuclear and decay properties of nuclides in their ground and isomericstates. All nuclides for which some experimental information is known are considered. Nubase uses extensively the information given…

Experimental studies of light dripline nuclei are reviewed. Progress in the production of very short lived nuclei and the development of radioactive nuclear beams has given this field the necessary tools for detailed studies of the most exotic…

The interferon regulatory factor 5 (IRF5) gene encodes a transcription factor that plays an important role in the innate as well as in the cellmediated immune responses. The IRF5 gene has been shown to be associated with systemic lupus…

Shape coexistence in nuclei appears to be unique in the realm of finite manybody quantum systems. It differs from the various geometrical arrangements that sometimes occur in a molecule in that in a molecule the various arrangements are of the…

Skyrme effective forces are revisited to improve their behavior with respect to the isospin degree of freedom from the stability line to the most exotic nuclei that coming experimental facilities will produce. To achieve the best possible…

We outline the structure of the nuclear force in the framework of chiral effective field theory of QCD and review recent applications to processes involving few nucleons. ?? 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

The limit of neutronrich nuclei, the neutron drip line, evolves regularly from light to mediummass nuclei except for a striking anomaly in the oxygen isotopes. This anomaly is not reproduced in shellmodel calculations derived from microscopic…

The neoclassical theory of plasma transport in axisymmetric, toroidal confinement systems, is developed by means of a variational principle for the rate of irreversible entropy production. The variational principle derived here employs the full…

This longstanding introductory text thoroughly describes nuclear manybody theory, with an emphasis on methodology and the technical aspects of the theories that have been used to describe the nucleus. Now available in a more affordable softcover…

We discuss several pairingrelated phenomena in nuclear systems, ranging from superfluidity in neutron stars to the gradual breaking of pairs in finite nuclei. We focus on the links between manybody pairing as it evolves from the underlying…

We review how nuclear forces emerge from lowenergy QCD via chiral effective field theory. The presentation is accessible to the nonspecialist. At the same time, we also provide considerable detailed information (mostly in appendices) for the…

Novel simple properties of the monopole component of effective nucleonnucleon interactions are presented, leading to the socalled monopolebased universal interaction. Shell structures are shown to change as functions of N and Z, consistent with…
