Microscopic calculation of mass transport coefficients in heavy ion collisions Academic Article uri icon


  • We present results of microscopic calculations of the drift and diffusion coefficients in deep inelastic heavy ion collisions. Assuming the two nuclei to interact weakly, we make use of first-order perturbation theory (Golden Rule) for nucleon transfer and take into account the Pauli blocking effect. The nucleon transfer probability from one nucleus to the other is obtained using single particle wave functions. The results obtained are consistent with empirical estimates. © 1981.
