Pairing fluctuations and gauge symmetry restoration in rotating superfluid nuclei

Yoshifumi R. Shimizu

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Rapidly rotating nuclei provide us good testing grounds to study the pairing correlations; in fact, the transition from the superfluid to the normal phase is realized at high-spin states. The role played by the pairing correlations is quite different in these two phases: The static (BCS like mean field) contribution is dominant in the superfluid phase, while the dynamic fluctuations beyond the mean field approximation are important in the normal phase. The influence of the pairing fluctuations on the high-spin rotational spectra and moments of inertia is discussed.
