Microcanonical simulation of nuclear multifragmentation

Jørgen Randrup, Steven E. Koonin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We discuss the formal basis for the theoretical treatment of nuclear multifragmentation within a microcanonical framework. The important role played by highly excited nuclear states and the interfragment forces is illustrated. The requirement of detailed balance is especially discussed and illustrated for the fission-fusion Metropolis moves in configuration space.
