Argonne/MSU/JINA/INT RIA Workshop on Reaction Mechanisms for Rare Isotope Beams
Includes bibliographical references and index.
The workshop focused on theoretical descriptions of the nuclear reactions that can be studied at present and future radioactive beam facilities, from low to relativistic energies. These facilities allow for the study of reactions with exotic nuclei that have never been accessible before, providing challenges for reaction theory as well as important input for nuclear astrophysics. Overview of the standard reaction formalisms was an important component of the meeting, keeping in mind the old issues that arose from reactions with stable nuclei which help us understand the challenges of applying existing approaches to radioactive beams.
