JINA will hold a third special "Tools and Toys
of Nuclear Astrophysics School on Nuclear Shell Model Applications" at Michigan State University during
February 13 - 17, 2006. The school will cover the basic theoretical
methods and computational tools used for shell model configuration
This workshop will cover the basic theoretical methods
and computational tools used for shell model configuration mixing
calculations. The input for these calculations will be explained and
defined. The outputs such as those for binding energies, excitation
energies, electromagnetic transitions, beta decay and spectroscopic
factors will be defined and used in examples. The emphasis will be
on a "hands-on" use of computer codes.
After completion, the participants should be able
to use modern shell model tools for analyzing experimental data and
perform theoretical studies and explorations of nuclear structure
Participants will be selected from applications.
Please submit an application through the JINA
Support for travel expenses will be available for participants in
need. Deadline for submission is January 15, 2006.
