Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 838)


We have seen in the preceding chapter that many observables connected with fission can only be calculated in a dynamical description of the fission process. This holds for the calculation of spontaneous fission lifetimes and of branching ratios between competing fission modes. A dynamical theory is also needed to obtain mass, charge, and angular momentum distributions of the fission fragments if one does not want to rely on doubtful assumptions about statistical equilibri scission or the misleading assumption that fission paths follow the bottom of fission valleys in somebody’s shape parameterization.
