"New Trends in Nuclear Collective Dynamics" emphasizes
research toward understanding collective and statistical
aspects of nuclear dynamics. Well-known lecturers from
centers of nuclear research present reviews of recent
developments. The topics covered are:
-order and chaos in finite quantum systems
-dissipation in heavy-ion collisions
-collective motionsin warm nuclei
-time-dependent mean-field theory with collision terms
-nuclear fission and multi-dimensional tunneling
-large-scale collective motion
