Looking through the past two decades, it is fair to say that significant progress has been made and that it has been predominantly through the analysis of these high energy data that we have learnt what we know about light dripline nuclei.
Reaction models to probe the structure of light exotic nuclei
Cuts through this dendrogram at different levels give divisions of the network into larger or smaller numbers of communities and, as with the GN algorithm, we can select the best cut by looking for the maximal value of Q.
