Laboratory, intrinsic and hidden symmetries in nuclear models


Seminar “Nuclear Theory”

Date and Time: Monday, 17 February 2020, at 3:30 PM

Venue: Blokhintsev Lecture Hall (2nd floor), Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics

Seminar topic: «Laboratory, intrinsic and hidden symmetries in nuclear models»

Speaker: A. Góźdź (University of Maria Curie-Skłodowska, Lublin)


Symmetries are fundamental properties of the physical world. In nuclear, (also atomic and molecular) physics symmetries can be considered as laboratory, intrinsic and some more exotic ones which can be called the hidden symmetries. During the talk, some examples of these three types of symmetries are shown on the basis of nuclear models. They have relations to actual, experimental searching of higher point nuclear symmetries, e.g. tetrahedral nuclei. A special type of hidden symmetries, called partial symmetries seems to provide a new approach to spectroscopic classification of nuclear bands.
