This paper is the second part of the new evaluation of atomic masses, AME2012. From the results of a leastsquares calculation, described in Part I, for all accepted experimental data, we derive here tables and graphs to replace those of AME2003.…

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…

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…

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…

Effective field theory allows for a systematic and modelindependent derivation of the forces between nucleons in harmony with the symmetries of Quantum Chromodynamics. We review the foundations of this approach and discuss its application for light…

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…

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…

Adopted values for the reduced electric quadrupole transition probability, B(E2)↑, from the ground state to the firstexcited 2+ state of even–even nuclides are given in Table I. Values of τ, the mean life of the 2+ state; E, the energy; and β, the…

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…

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…

Entanglement and (de)coherence arguably define the central issues of concern in present day quantum information theory. Entanglement being a consequence of the quantum mechanical superposition principle for composite systems, a better understanding…

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…

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…

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…

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…

This paper is the first of two articles (Part I and Part II) that presents the results of the new atomic mass evaluation, AME2012. It includes complete information on the experimental input data (including not used and rejected ones), as well as…

We present the first nucleonnucleon potential at nexttonexttonexttoleading order (fourth order) of chiral perturbation theory. Chargedependence is included up to nexttoleading order of the isospinviolation scheme. The accuracy for the…

This paper describes the components and methods of a comprehensive code for coupled reaction channels calculations in nuclear physics. Procedures are described which are common to the mod elling of reactions induced by light and mediummass ions,…
