Abstract [en]

A partial conservation of the seniority quantum number in j = 9/2 shells has been found recently in a numerical application. In this paper an analytic proof for this problem is derived as an extension of the work [L. Zamick, P. Van Isacker, Phys. Rev. C 78 (2008) 044327]. We analyze the properties of the non-diagonal interaction matrix elements with the help of the one-particle and two-particle coefficients of fractional parentage (cfp's). It is found that all non-diagonal (and the relevant diagonal) matrix elements can be re-expressed in simple ways and are proportional to certain one-particle cfp's. This remarkable occurrence of partial dynamic symmetry is the consequence of the peculiar property of the j = 9/2 shell, where all it = 3 and 5 states are uniquely defined.

Abstract [en]

In this thesis the properties of unbound nuclei like 12,13Li are studiedby extending the multistep shell model to the complex energy plane. Thenuclei 12Li and 13Li are described starting from the one-particle states in 10Liand two-particle states in 11Li. The ground state of 12Li is found to be anantibound state. No bound or antibound state is found in 13Li. It is alsoshown that the odd proton plays a minor role in these nuclei.This framework is also applied to study the recently proposed spin-alignedproton-neutron pair coupling scheme. For this the MSM is extended to theproton-neutron space as well as the isospin space. In the model, a nonorthogonalbasis is introduced, which allows us to identify simultaneously theroles played by all configurations. The four-particle, six-particle and eightparticlenuclei in the heaviest N = Z region are evaluated using the MSMbasis within the space spanned by the single 0g9/2 hole shell.A novel Monte Carlo representation in the complex energy plane is alsodeveloped for studying nuclear excitations in the continuum. The calculationson realistic potentials show a stable performance and high accuracy in the oneparticleand two-particle cases. This will provide a convenient tool to studyopen systems with many nucleons in the continuum.
