INT Workshop, University of Washington
Pairing degrees of freedom in nuclei and the nuclear medium

Nov. 14-17 2005

The purpose of this four-day workshop is to consolidate our knowledge of the pairing interaction and pairing effects in nuclei. The themes of the four days are:

Monday, Nov. 14
The interaction.
--Effective interactions from two-particle potentials or T-matrices.
--Role of medium polarization
--Constraints from symmetries

Tuesday Nov. 15
Nuclear structure applications
--Computational methods.

--global surveys
--excitations

Wednesday Nov. 16
Astrophysical Context.
--Proton and neutron pairing.
--vortices
--Pasta phase of nuclear matter.
--Transport at positive neutron chemical potential.

Thursday Nov. 17
Summary and Discussion.
Near-term and far-term open problems, homework problems

George Bertsch and Aurel Bulgac
