FYSS3470 Introduction to nuclear models and interpretation of experimental data (4 cr)
Introduction to various nuclear models and their theoretical concepts
Strengths and weaknesses of various models
Use of nuclear models in the interpretation of experimental data
Experimental data for nuclear models
After the course the student is able to
Identify basic nuclear properties and to explain main features of their theoretical descriptions
Outline what are the key experimental observables and what input they can provide for theoretical models
What constraints and limitations various theoretical models possess and how they can explain measured data
These topics will be discussed (mainly) from the perspective of experimental techniques employed in the JYFL accelerator laboratory.
Description of prerequisites
