HRIBF Summer Program

A three week Summer Program is planned at HRIBF for July 11--29, 1994. The first two weeks, July 11--22, will concentrate on Nuclear Structure, and the last week, July 25--29, will concentrate on Nuclear Astrophysics. It is emphasised that this is NOT intended to be a workshop or a school. Instead a few distinguished speakers will be invited for each week. They will present two or three lectures each on topics which may be important to the early experimental program for HRIBF. It is hoped that this will provide sufficient intellectual stimulation to encourage users to bring their postdocs and students with them to Oak Ridge. Since only a portion of the time will be devoted to lectures, there will be sufficient time for extended discussions with the speakers, as well as time to plan early experiments.

The people who have agreed to "speak" and their tenative topics are given below:

Week of July 11 -- 15:
     Alan Goodman            T = 0 (n--p) Pair Correlations

     Witek Nazarewicz        Current & Future Nuclear Structure Models for
                               Drip Line Nuclei
     Vladimir Zelevinsky     Theoretical Description of Narrow Resonances


Week of July 18 -- 22:

     Paul-Henri Hennen+      Self-Consistent Nuclear Structure Calculations
                               for Exotic Nuclei
     Ramon Wyss              Cranking Calculations for A = 80 & 110--140 Nuclei
