Heavy-ion reactions are affected by the nuclear structure of the
reactants and other dynamical processes during the collision.
Theoretical studies of such reactions lead to a clearer
understanding of prohibitive mechanisms to heavy-ion fusion. One
application of this is superheavy element formation, where
quasifission is the major competing process to the formation of a
compound nucleus in this region of the nuclear chart.
