By David M. Brink, Ricardo A. Broglia

Nuclear Superfluidity is a complicated textual content committed solely to pair correlations in nuclei. It starts by way of exploring pair correlations in quite a few platforms together with superconductivity in metals at low temperatures and superfluidity in liquid 3He and in neutron stars. The ebook is going directly to introduce simple theoretical tools, symmetry breaking and symmetry recovery in finite many-body platforms. The final 4 chapters are dedicated to introducing effects at the position of prompted interactions within the constitution of either general and unique nuclei. crucial of those is the renormalization of the pairing interplay as a result coupling of pairs of nucleons to low power nuclear collective excitations. This publication can be crucial interpreting for researchers and scholars in either experimental and theoretical nuclear physics, and similar examine fields akin to steel clusters, fullerenes and quantum dots.

This interplay between pairing and shell effects is responsible for the band crossing or ‘backbending’ phenomena observed in rotating deformed nuclei (Stephens and Simon (1972), Bohr and Mottelson (1974, 1981), Broglia et al. (1974a), (1975)) (see Chapter 6). 10 Neutron stars Atoms dissolve when ordinary matter is compressed to a very high density, namely when the separation of the nuclei is smaller than the atomic size. 10 Neutron stars 31 positive charged nuclei move in a plasma of free electrons.

According to the BCS theory all electrons near the Fermi surface in the ground state of a superconductor form correlated Cooper pairs. Excited states are formed by breaking pairs and there is an energy gap 2 between the ground state and the lower excited states (Fig. 8). It is this energy gap which stabilizes the superconducting state. Thermal effects can break pairs, and in BCS theory the presence of unpaired electrons reduces the binding of those pairs which remain.
