Nuclear Matter and Fragmenting Nuclei

  • J. P. Bondorf

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 205)


In these lectures we approach the problem of extracting information on properties of nuclear matter through violent collisions between finite nuclei. In such processes the nuclei will undergo fragmentation into many pieces. We discuss a model of statistical multifragmentation.
