This paper is the second part of the new evaluation of atomic masses Ame2003. 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 1993. 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…

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…

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…

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 eveneven nuclides are given in Table I. Values of ??, the mean life of the 2+ state, E, the energy, and ??2,…

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 v18<math><mrow><msub><mrow><mi mathvariant="italic">v<mrow><mn>18. The model has a chargeindependent part with…

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…

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…

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 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…

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…

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,…

Choosing good problems is essential for being a good scientist. But what is a good problem, and how do you choose one? The subject is not usually discussed explicitly within our profession. Scientists are expected to be smart enough to figure it out…

Neutron stars are some of the densest manifestations of massive objects in the universe. They are ideal astrophysical laboratories for testing theories of dense matter physics and provide connections among nuclear physics, particle physics, and…

Neutron stars are composed of the densest form of matter known to exist in our Universe, the composition and properties of which are still theoretically uncertain. Measurements of the masses or radii of these objects can strongly constrain the…

We tabulate the atomic mass excesses and nuclear groundstate deformations of 8979 nuclei ranging from 16O to A = 339. The calculations are based on the finiterange droplet macroscopic model and the foldedYukawa singleparticle microscopic model.…
