Title: {alpha}-condensed state with a core nucleus

Abstract

We demonstrate based on a microscopic {alpha}-cluster model that {alpha}-condensed states appear not only in light nuclei such as {sup 12}C and {sup 16}O but also in heavier nuclei with a core at excitation energies corresponding to multi-{alpha}-threshold energies. To extend the study of normal {alpha}-condensed state to the cases of heavier nuclei with an inner strongly bound core ({sup 16}O) and also to non-4N-nuclei (e.g., 2{alpha}+dineutron), we introduce a Monte Carlo technique for the description of the Schuck wave function, which are called ''virtual Schuck'' wave function.
