Solitonic fullerence structures in light atomic nuclei

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    To study nuclei of large atomic number, the minimal energy configurations of multisolition should be computed. Simulations using two different approaches were carried out to compute the minimal energy solutions for up to 22 solitons. Results establish an attractive analogy with fullerene cages familiar in carbon chemistry.
