Large Scale Shell Model is the tool of choice for spectroscopic studies in the modern nuclear structure calculations. It can describe simultaneously the spectroscopic properties and decay of odd and even nuclei in a given mass region. Being fully microscopic, it is as well perfectly suited for studies of the fundamental properties of the nuclear force. The shell model code ANTOINE, created by E. Caurier in Strasbourg, is one of most popular shell model codes in the world.
In this course, we plan to familiarize its participants with the basic ideas of the shell model during the lectures as well as with the code ANTOINE, which the participants will use during the computing sessions. In the subsequent lectures we will discuss the ingredients necessary for shell model calculations, the modern theory of the effective interactions, shell model description of deformed nuclei, and the Lanczos strength function method. During the sessions, the participants will practice calculations of the spectra, electromagnetic transitions, beta-decays and spectroscopic factors.
Lecturers: E. Caurier, G. Martinez-Pinedo, F. Nowacki, A. Poves, K. Sieja
