Guide to the List of Publications of Friedrich Everling
The most important finding by the author is the Dynamic Lattice Model of the Atomic Nucleus presented in Publication No. 50.
In this oral contribution at the Conference “State of the Art in Nuclear Cluster Physics”, 13 – 16 May 2008 in Strasbourg, a new model of nuclear structure was presented which conceives the nucleus as a face-centered cubic lattice of standing proton and neutron waves. The approximately close-packed system of spheres was discovered to have - independently of nuclear physics - a symmetry property which generates numbers identical to the nuclear magic numbers.
The development of the Dynamic Lattice Model of the Atomic Nucleus is closely linked to the author’s second important finding, the Linear Relationships between the Binding Energy of Excited Nuclides and the Mass Number. It is most extensively presented for some even-even nuclides in the Publication No. 43. Further details are given in the link “Presentation” under Publication No. 50.
In Publication No. 43, the novel method of evaluating nuclear binding energies not only for ground states, but also for excited states in plots of −B+9.5 MeV·A versus A is explained. In addition, the consequences concerning configuration mixing are investigated. The linear relationships are consistent with the Dynamic Lattice Model.
A novel, important extension of the method of plotting nuclear binding energies of nuclides with even Z and N and odd Z and N was accomplished by using averages of the binding energies of pairs of odd-A mirror nuclides. The trends thus obtained can be very well compared with those of the self-conjugate nuclides. This method was introduced in Publication No. 39, used in Nos. 40 and 41, and explained in more detail in No. 42 .
In 1959, the author published the first diagram of separation energies to include excited states (No. 12).
A third category of publications was devoted to the generation of least-squares-adjusted Nuclidic Mass Tables.
The work on nuclear systematics revealed many cases where spin determinations or a search for an expected level would be extremely useful. Publication No. 43 alone contains 18 such cases and No. 44 many more.
