Lattice calculations of nuclear vibrations

  I just received a notification that the penultimate article in the special topic in Frontiers In Physics that I am co-editing has appeared.  It's called "Nuclear Collective Dynamics in Transport Model with the Lattice Hamiltonian Method" and it deals with a method in which the motion of a nucleus is described in terms of the the evolution of the Wigner function (the nuclear density Fourier-transformed to the momentum representation).  By including collisions between nucleons in the formalism, the authors describe the width of giant resonances rather well, as shown in the picture above (fig 7 from the paper).

 That leaves just one more paper to appear, and also means that I should get on with writing the editorial in time to make a free e-book of the Special Topic.
