Collinear true ternary fission as the consequence of the collective nuclear modelApr 24 2019The concept of collinear spontaneous true ternary fission of 252Cf is subject to critical check by means of the trajectory calculations. The conclusion is that the collinear flight of the fragments turns out to be a natural and most probable mode. The ... More

A new geometrical approach to metric-affine gravityJul 16 2013Here we consider a metric-affine theory of gravity in which the gravitational Lagrangian is the scalar curvature. The matter action is allowed to depend also on the torsion and the nonmetricity, which are considered as the field variables together with ... More
