About DCEN2011

A long-term international workshop on "Dynamics and Correlations in Exotic Nuclei" (DCEN2011) will be held in Kyoto (Japan) during 20 September - 28 October, 2011. DCEN2011 is a six-week workshop focusing on the theoretical physics of exotic nuclei. This workshop is planned as one of the series of long-term workshops sponsored by the Yukawa International Program for Quark-Hadron Sciences (YIPQS). The workshop is designed to promote new inspirations on physics of exotic nuclei as well as new collaborations through active discussions among participants. A limited number of talks (typically two talks) will be given everyday.

Following subjects will be discussed,

  1. Universal descriptions of nuclear structure: from bare-force approaches to density functionals
  2. Many-body techniques for clustering, shape, shells and continuum
  3. Nuclear reaction theories for exotic nuclei

Tentative Program of DCEN2011 is as follows.

These topics will be discussed mainly in the week(s) specified below, although they may be discussed in other weeks as well depending on participants' convenience.
