### Theory of nuclear structure

Abstract:

Inelastic scattering of heavy ions to low-lying collective states is studied. Symmetries of the scattering amplitude are discussed and, in particular, the conditions for the validity of an approximate symmetry property are derived. One condition is that the excitation should be 'adiabatic'. The consequences of this approximate symmetry are given: these include zero vector polarization and a gamma-ray distribution that is symmetric about the direction of recoil.

In the more general c...
