Statistical Analysis of the Distribution of 0+ State Energies in the Actinide Nuclei

Section: Nuclei and Nuclear Reactions
Original Author's Text: English

Abstract: The statistical analysis of the distributions of the 0+ state energies in actinide nuclei is carried
out, by using the Brody distribution function. It reveals an intermediate character of the exper-
imental 0+ spectra between order and chaos. This function is turned out to be diferent for the
available experimental data and the calculated ones in the frame of the quasiparticle-phonon
model.

Key words: 0+ states, Brody distribution, quasiparticle-phonon model.
