New model of binding energies of heavy nuclei with Z{>=}90
Abstract
A new form of the binding energy formula of heavy nuclei with Z{>=}90 is proposed where new terms beyond the standard Bethe and Weizsaecker formula are introduced by analytical expressions. This can be considered an interesting development of the Bethe and Weizsaecker mass formula for heavy nuclei with Z{>=}90. Two versions of the formulae are presented. The first version of the formula can reproduce the 117 known binding energies of nuclei with Z{>=}90 and N{>=}140 with an average deviation 0.118 MeV. This is the first time that the binding energies of heavy nuclei with Z{>=}90 and N{>=}140 can be calculated very accurately by a formula with only seven parameters. The binding energies, {alpha}decay energies, and {alpha}decay halflives of unknown superheavy nuclei are predicted. The second version of the formula is obtained by fitting the 181 data of nuclei with Z{>=}90 with nine parameters and good agreement with experimental binding energies is also reached for all nuclei with Z{>=}90.

A local formula of binding energy for heavy and superheavy nuclei has very recently been proposed [Dong and Ren, Phys. Rev. C 72, 064331 (2005)]. In this paper, the limit of the predictive ability of this local formula is investigated. It is found that the neutronproton correlations should be considered when higher precision is required. On the one hand, we introduce a new term NZ50/A, and on the other hand we consider the different strengths of protonproton, neutronneutron, and neutronproton pairing correlations. For the first time, the standard deviation {radical}({sigma}{sup 2}) of the binding energies for 117 nuclei with Z{>=}90more »

Construction of shellmodel interactions for Z approx gt 50, N approx gt 82 nuclei: Predictions for A =133134. beta. sup minus decays
Twoshellmodel interactions are constructed in the model space of the five proton and six neutron orbits just above the double shell closure at {sup 132}Sn. One interaction uses the twobody matrix elements calculated by Kuo and Herling for use near {sup 208}Pb. For the other, the protonproton twobody matrix elements are replaced with effective ones of Kruse and Wildenthal and selected protonneutron matrix elements were varied in order to better reproduce the known energy spectra of {sup 134}Sb. The main difficulty in this construction is the determination of the neutron singleparticle energies. This determination was done by comparison of theoreticalmore »
