Title: Phase transitions and phase coexistence in finite nuclei

Abstract

Recent experiments on {sup 152}Sm have revealed a possibly unique type of phase transitional behavior and phase coexistence in nuclei and focus attention on a potential signature for such a phenomenon. The question of the existence of true phase transitional behavior and phase coexistence in finite nuclei is discussed in terms of the discrete nature of nucleon number and a possible control parameter for nuclear structural evolution.
