Centre for Particle Theory Colloquia: What light nuclei are revealing; nuclear correlations and clusters

Presented by Martin Freer, University of Birmingham

3 February 2015 16:00 in CLC 202

The structure of light nuclei provides a microcosm for our understanding of the strong interaction, but importantly one in which it is possible to apply state-of-the-art nuclear models. The correlations that are responsible for binding of nuclei also yield complex structures linked to the formation of clusters. The clusters, typically alpha-particles, can arrange themselves in geometric structures, with dynamical symmetries. This talk will explore how these clusters precipitate and how the cluster structures might be imaged and their impact of stellar processes and even the origins of organic-life.
