Stars in Photographic Emulsions Initiated by Deuterons Part II. Theoretical

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The theory of high energy nuclear stars depends on a theory of nuclear transparency and on a theory of nuclear evaporation. The transparency can be computed on the basis of a model proposed by R. Serber as soon as the interactions between the nucleons and the incident particle are known. The evaporation can be computed on the basis of the statistical model of the nucleus as soon as the nuclear entropy and binding energies of the evaporated particles are known. The calculations have been formulated with approximate values for the above interactions, entropies, and binding energies; and by means of ... continued below

Description

The theory of high energy nuclear stars depends on a theory of nuclear transparency and on a theory of nuclear evaporation. The transparency can be computed on the basis of a model proposed by R. Serber as soon as the interactions between the nucleons and the incident particle are known. The evaporation can be computed on the basis of the statistical model of the nucleus as soon as the nuclear entropy and binding energies of the evaporated particles are known. The calculations have been formulated with approximate values for the above interactions, entropies, and binding energies; and by means of various mathematical methods: a method of averages, a method of reaction integrals, and one using diffusion equations. Probability distributions have been obtained for the number of prongs per star, and distributions are being computed for the energy and angle of a prong. The results are in qualitative agreement with the observations on photographic emulsions described in Part I.
