Nuclear Structure at High Spin

  • Bent Herskind
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 130)


A review of nuclear structure of high spin states is given in these lectures with emphasis on the latest development in γ-ray spectroscopy. It is one of the topics in nuclear structure physics which has attracted most attention recently. Therefore, several complete reviews as well as innumerous papers on selected topics have been published within the last year. I shall therefore in these notes prefer to refer to these reviews and original papers rather than try to make yet another compendium.
