Nuclei Theory


We investigate collective vibrations and rotations of atomic nuclei from the classical viewpoint within the geometric collective model. We quantify the proportion of regular and chaotic orbits in the phase space, observing very complex behavior of its dependence on the model control parameters, energy, and angular momentum.
