An Introduction to the Interacting Boson Model of the Atomic Nucleus
by Walter Pfeifer
Publisher: arXiv 2003
Number of pages: 181
This work introduces into the Interacting Boson Model, which was created in 1974 by F. Iachello and A. Arima and then extended by numerous papers. Many-body configurations with s- and d-boson states are described and creation- and annihilation-operators for bosons are introduced. States with defined total angular momentum are dealt with and the Hamilton operator of the IBM1-model is expressed in terms of Casimir operators.

Marie Curie opened up the science of radioactivity. She is best known as the discoverer of polonium and radium and as the first person to win two Nobel prizes. Her radium was a key to a change in our understanding of matter and energy.

We present a brief survey of the development of nuclear physics towards relativistic quark physics. This is followed by a discussion of the quest for the observation of the dissolution of nuclear matter into the deconfined quark matter ...

While the focus of the study is on the TPX and alternate concepts, it also provides a history of the overall fusion energy program. With this context, the study identifies (but does not answer) some underlying questions that must be addressed.
