Abstract.

An overview of direct reactions employed for nuclear structure studies is presented. The basic and most used analysis methods of elastic and inelastic scattering, transfer reactions and intermediate-energy removal reactions are reviewed. The most relevant observables from direct reactions regarding the nuclear many-body problem, as well as related experimental techniques, are illustrated through recent achievements with unstable nuclei.
