Our current interests and activities • • • • Reaction mechanisms: 1) Elastic scattering and microscopic calculations of optical potentials. 2) Breakup and transfer of weakly bound nuclei. 3) One and two neutron halo systems. 4) Unbound nuclei studied via transfer and fragmentation. Isospin Dynamics in Reactions with Exotic Beams: 1) Isospin dynamics in low energy dissipative collisions 2) Isospin in Nuclear fragmentation. Finite Nuclear Systems in Brueckner Theory: 1) BHF calculations of asymmetric and polarized matter. 2) Construction of the energy functional. 3) Ground states and excitations of finite nuclei. 4) Neutron star crust. Structure and collective modes: 1) Study of the pairing correlations in low-density nuclear systems. 2) Microscopic estimate of inelastic excitation to the low-lying continuum dipole strength via microscopic continuum RPA calculations. 3) Study of isospin symmetry in low- and high-spin states in medium-mass N=Z nuclei up to 100Sn. Study of the interplay of T=0 and T=1 pairing. 4) Study of nuclear structure with algebraic models. Can a good percentage of our theoretical work be considered unrelated to experiments ? ickTime™ u anda TIarFenee (Q ncom U sse sed re dedpr t oe e) thde iscp icom t urp .essor Is all experimental work well oriented?

How to make our field more efficient? Reorganization • Up from the bottom approach : thesis jointly supervised by a theoretician and an experimentalist. Students will be better educated, thesis will be more ‘readeable’, we will be forced to find not too technical problems, relationships theoreticianexperimentalists will improve: • ie G. Blanchon thesis COTUTELA Y. Blumenfeld & N. Orr. • Mobility will automatically be implemented. Consuntivo Scientifico all’ 1/7/05.
