 Paradigm Change: The New Unification of Nuclear Physics

After more than 50 years of dominance of the gas-like "shell model" of nuclear structure, a new model promises to replace it. Cook shows how a face-centered-cubic lattice reproduces the SAME shells and subshells that made the shell model dominant. But the lattice also has tetrahedral clusters (like the alpha-particle model) AND a liquid-like nuclear interior (ALL nucleon-nucleon interactions are realistic nearest-neighbor effects). And that's it! Unification of the diverse models of nuclear physics in a self-consistent, comprehensible lattice model.
