Current Research Interests

Theory of the structure of atomic nuclei, especially study of nuclear models, within the general framework of interacting many-body systems. Continuing interest in systematics of nuclear data (masses, spectra), with special emphasis on new results well away from the valley of beta stability and approaching the nucleon drip lines, where the binding of individual nucleons to the nucleus becomes zero. Application of algebraic methods to the study of simplified models of strongly-interacting many-body systems.
