Empirical neutron-proton pairing
Presented by Mr. Semyon SIDOROV
Track: Theoretical Physics
Various mass relations describing neutron-proton pairing in nuclei are discussed. Groups of mass relations based on np-pair separation energy differences and description of mass surfaces, are compared in their behavior along chains of nuclei N=Z+const, as well as chains of isotopes and isotones. Coinciding estimates for self-conjugate nuclei and differing results for nuclei along the lines N=Z+const (with the constant not equal to zero) for different mass relations are analyzed.
