Angular Momentum Dynamics in Damped Nuclear Reactions
Damped nuclear reactions are studied in order to improve our understanding of macroscopic nuclear dynamics at moderate excitation. Towards this end, it is important to study angular-momentum related observables, as they carry considerable information about the reaction dynamics: While the correlated mass and charge distribution, which has received much attention in the past, can be characterized by two mean values and three second moments, the correlated fragment spin-spin distribution requires two mean values and thirteen non-trivial covariances.
