The target of Advances in Nuclear Physics is to supply evaluate papers which chart the sphere of nuclear physics with a few regularity and completeness. We outline the sector of nuclear physics as that which offers with the constitution and behaviour of atomic nuclei. even supposing many reliable books and reports on nuclear physics can be found, none makes an attempt to supply a insurance that is while carrying on with and fairly entire. many of us have felt the necessity for a brand new sequence to fill this hole and this can be the ambition of Advances in Nuclear Physics. The articles may be aimed toward a large viewers, from examine scholars to lively learn employees. the choice of themes and their remedy could be different however the simple standpoint can be pedagogical. some time past 20 years the sector of nuclear physics has accomplished its personal id, occupying a imperative place among simple particle physics on one aspect and atomic and sturdy country physics at the different. Nuclear physics is amazing either by means of its solidarity, which it derives from its concise obstacles, and via its outstanding variety, which stems from the multiplicity of experimental methods and from the complexity of the nucleon-nucleon strength. Physicists focusing on one point of this strongly unified, but very advanced, box locate it vital to stick well-informed of the opposite elements. this offers a powerful motivation for a accomplished sequence of reviews.

Spicer shown are concerned with odd mass nuclei, and, as yet, no account has been taken of the presence of that odd particle. So it seems natural that the tentative explanation of this extra structure is that it is due to transitions of single particles and the coupling of their motion to the collective modes.
M. Spicer showed that the photon absorption cross sections for spherical nuclei have one narrow maximum. This is broadened in deformed nuclei, and for A = 165, the computed cross section showed two separated maxima. On this basis, Mottelson and Nilsson(52) and Thies and Spicer(43) showed that it is possible to predict semi quantitatively the manner in which the nuclear deformation will affect the electric dipole absorption cross section. In the deformed basis, the j of individual particles is no longer a good quantum number but is replaced by K, the projection of j on the nuclear symmetry axis.
7 are the predicted dipole level energies in blocked form, the height of the blocking representing the integrated absorption cross section for each level. The experimental results represent the predicted structure well. A measurement, with good resolution, of the cross section of the Pr H1 (y,n) reaction(62) serves to illustrate the difficulties of interpreting the measurements by the theory just discussed.
