This year's 4 articles handle themes starting from the character of the substructure of the nucleon and the deuteron to the final houses of the nucleus, together with its section transitions and its wealthy and unforeseen quantal houses. They evaluate the current experimental and theoretical figuring out of the beginning of the spin of the nucleon, the liquid-gas section transition that happens at a lot reduce temperatures and densities than these of a quark-gluon plasma in relativistic heavy-ion collisions, the experimental info and theoretical types rising approximately very-high-spin states of nuclei, and the background of findings from the deuteron derived from contemporary electron-deuteron scattering experiments with saw polarizations and different experiments. The authors should not pointed out.

At super low temperatures, clouds of bosonic atoms shape what's often called a Bose-Einstein condensate. lately, it has develop into transparent that many differing kinds of condensates -- so referred to as fragmented condensates -- exist. that allows you to inform even if fragmentation happens or no longer, it is important to resolve the entire many-body Schrödinger equation, a role that remained elusive for experimentally appropriate stipulations for a few years.
This publication examines the character of the coherent excitation produced in atoms by way of lasers. It examines the precise brief edition of excited-state populations with time and with controllable parameters similar to laser frequency and depth. The dialogue assumes modest earlier wisdom of easy quantum mechanics and, in a few sections, nodding acquaintance with Maxwell's equations of electrodynamics.
Advances within the physics and chemistry of low-dimensional platforms were particularly terrific within the previous few a long time. enormous quantities of quasi-one-dimensional and quasi-two-dimensional structures were synthesized and studied. the most well-liked representatives of quasi-one-dimensional fabrics are polyacethylenes CH  and accomplishing donor-acceptor molecular crystals TIF z TCNQ.

After that, Wigner never turned active attention to nuclear structure physics. He followed some attempts to attribute shell closures to tensor forces which are present in the nucleon-nucleon interaction. They failed, however, to explain even the meagre experimental data available then. Yet, even until recent years, there were several attempts to resurrect the SU(4) scheme and apply it to nuclei. Some physicists have realized its merits and tried to find some evidence for its validity in nuclear physics.
The study of energy levels carried out by Edmonds and Flowers (1952b) was detailed and systematic. They used the seniority scheme which was originally introduced by Racah (1943) for classifying the states of atomic electrons. Flowers (1952c) generalized it to and to include isospin (Racah’s paper with this generalization was published somewhat later). For isospins smaller than Flowers introduced another quantum number besides the seniority As will be described in the following, a state of the configuration of identical nucleons with seniority and spin J has a corresponding state in the configuration.
The configuration of several valence identical or non-identical, has several states allowed by the Pauli principle. They are all degenerate in the central potential, they all have the same energy equal to times the single nucleon energy of the given In such cases, the ground state and order of other levels are determined by the mutual interaction of the It is considered as a perturbation and thus, calculated by diagonalizing its matrix constructed from wave functions in the configuration. The two nucleon interaction is assumed to be rotationally invariant and hence, eigenstates of this interaction matrix have definite values of the total spin J.
