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…

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 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…

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;…

GEANT4 is a toolkit for simulating the passage of particles through matter. It includes a complete range of functionality including tracking, geometry, physics models and hits. The physics processes offered cover a comprehensive range, including…

HartreeFock calculations have been made for closed shell nuclei using a form of density dependent nucleonnucleon interaction suggested by Skyrme. The results are very good for bindingenergies, densities and energies of single particle levels near…

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…

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…

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 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…

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…

This biennial Review summarizes much of particle physics. Using data from previous editions, plus 2778 new measurements from 645 papers, we list, evaluate, and average measured properties of gauge bosons, leptons, quarks, mesons, and baryons. We…

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…

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…

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…

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…

We present an overview of lowmomentum twonucleon and manybody interactions and their use in calculations of nuclei and infinite matter. The softening of phenomenological and effective field theory (EFT) potentials by renormalization group (RG)…

We calculate the triton binding energy with a nonlocal NN potential that fits the world NN data below 350 MeV with the almost perfect $\chi^2$/datum of 1.03. The nonlocality is derived from relativistic meson field theory. The result obtained in a…
