The Shell Model Distribution of Nuclear Shapes

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 289)


The recent observation of superdeformed states has revived interest in the coexistence of different deformation shapes in the low energy spectra of nuclei. The question arises as to what deformation shapes are available to a given nucleus and where in the energy spectrum they should make their appearance.
