At the edge of nuclear stability: nonlinear quantum amplifiers

Attila Csoto

Submitted on 17 October 2000

Abstract

We show that nuclear states lying at the edge of stability may show enormously enhanced response to small perturbations. For example, a 0.1% change in the strength of the strong nucleon-nucleon interaction can cause almost a hundred times bigger change in the resonance energy of the 0+_2 state of 12C.
