Spin dependence of critical point behavior for first and second order phase transitions in nuclei

Williams, Elizabeth; Casperson, R.J.; Werner, V.


A study of first and second order nuclear shape phase transitional behavior in yrast states of even-even nuclei in the context of the Interacting Boson Model-1 is presented. Finite boson number effects are identified using calculations with up to 150 bosons, and the role of the rotational degree of freedom of observables in first and second order quantum phase transitional nuclei is discussed. We aim to provide a first investigation of the angular momentum dependence of experimentally...[Show more]
