Reexamination of a novel determination of density, temperature, and symmetry energy based on a modified Fisher model
Abstract
Excited nuclei behave like liquid droplets and undergo phase transition at finite excitation temperatures; as proposed by M.E. Fisher in 1967 in order to describe the power law behavior of the “fragment” mass distribution around the critical point for a liquidgas phase transition. In the early 1980s, the pioneering work of the Purdue group generated a novel classical droplet model based on the Fischer Model, which was the socalled Modified Fisher Model(MFM). In this article, a mistake in the formulation of the Modified Fisher Model (MFM) is addressed and corrected by reversing the sign of the mixing entropy term in the original formulation. The errors in the results of the previous MFMrelated studies, such as isotopic yield distribution, isobaric yield ratios, isoscaling, mscaling, selfconsistent, determination of density, symmetry energy and temperature, and density and temperature determination related to the IMF Freeze out, are quantitatively analyzed. It is found that the errors originating from the mistake in sign of the mixing entropy term are generally small and even have no effect in some cases.
