Speaker(s): Dr Witek Nazarewicz, Department of Physics and Astronomy and FRIB/NSCL, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan, USA
What are the heaviest nuclei and atoms that can exist? Are superheavy systems different from lighter nuclear species? Is there an island of very long-lived nuclei? Can superheavy nuclei be produced in stellar explosions? Questions such as these provide formidable challenges for both experiment and theory. This talk will review perspectives in this field of research.
