Title: Daniel Gogny’s vision for a microscopic theory of fission

Abstract

Daniel Gogny made many contributions to our understanding of nuclear fission over a span of 35 years. This paper reviews some of those contributions, focusing in particular on fission dynamics, the challenges of describing scission in a quantum-mechanical context, and the calculation of fragment properties such as their mass, kinetic, and excitation energy distributions. Here, the generator coordinate method provides the common theoretical framework within which these various aspects of fission are formulated.
