The Isospin Dependence of Nuclear Reactions at Intermediate Energies

  • Gary D. Westfall

Abstract

The isospin dependence of nuclear reactions at intermediate energies can provide insight into the nuclear equation of state, in-medium nucleon-nucleon scattering cross sections, and the mechanism of the production of intermediate mass fragments (IMFs) in these collisions. In paper we will present results for the isospin dependence of in-plane collective transverse flow and the production of IMFs as a function of charged particle multiplicity. The flow results are compared with BUU model calculations while the IMF results are compared with the percolation model.
