*α*-decays process in this region are categorized as the even-even, odd A, and odd-odd nuclei, first, and second they are grouped into two parts as a ground state to ground state and ground state to isomeric states transition. Due to their root-mean-square deviations (RMSD's) comparison,

**Abstract:**

We propose that fast radio bursts (FRBs) can be used as the probes to constrain the possible anisotropic distribution of baryon matter in the Universe. Monte Carlo simulations show that, 400 (800) FRBs are enough to detect the anisotropy at 95% (99%) confidence level, if the dipole amplitude is at the order of magnitude 0.01. However, much more FRBs are required to tightly constrain the dipole direction. Even 1000 FRBs are far from enough to constrain the dipole direction within angular uncertainty

**Abstract:**

The flux-weighted average cross sections of

^{115g,m,111m,109,107,105,104}Cd and

^{nat}Cd(γ, x)

^{113g,112,111g,110m}Ag reactions were measured at the bremsstrahlung end-point energies of 50 and 60 MeV with the activation and off-line γ-ray spectrometric technique using the 100 MeV electron linac at the Pohang Accelerator Laboratory, Korea. The

^{nat}Cd(γ, xn) reaction cross sections as a function of photon energy were theoretically calculated using the TALYS-1.95 and the EMPIRE-3.2 malata codes. Then the flux-weighted average cross sections were obtained from the theoretical values of mono-energetic photons. These values were compared with the flux-weighted values of the present work and are found to be in general agreement. The measured experimental reaction cross-sections and integral yields are described for cadmium and silver isotopes in the

^{nat}Cd(γ, xn)

^{115g,m,111m,109,107,105,104}Cd and

^{113g,112,111g,110m}Ag reactions. The isomeric yield ratio (IR) of

^{115g,m}Cd in the

^{nat}Cd(γ, xn) reaction was also determined for above two bremsstrahlung end-point energies. The measured isomeric yield ratios of

^{115g,m}Cd in the

^{nat}Cd(γ, xn) reaction were also compared with the theoretical values of the nuclear model codes and the earlier published literature data in the

^{116}Cd(γ,n) and

^{116}Cd(n,2n) reactions. It was found that with the increase of projectile energy IR value increases, which demonstrate the characteristic of excitation energy. However, the higher IR value of

^{115g,m}Cd in the

^{116}Cd(n,2n) reaction compared to the

^{116}Cd(γ,n) reaction indicates the role of compound nuclear spin besides excitation energy.

**Abstract:**

We perform a systematic study on the effect of non-uniform track efficiency correction in higher-order cumulant analysis in heavy-ion collisions. Through analytical derivation, we find that the true values of cumulants can be successfully reproduced by the efficiency correction with an average of the realistic detector efficiency for particles with the same charges within each single phase space. During a toy model simulation by tuning the non-uniformity of the efficiency employed in the track-by-track efficiency correction method, the theoretical conclusions are supported and the valid averaged efficiency is found to suppress the statistical uncertainties of the reproduced cumulants dramatically. Thus, the usage of the averaged efficiency requires a careful study for the phase space dependence. This study is important for carrying out precision measurements of higher-order cumulants in heavy-ion collision experiments at present and in future.

**Abstract:**

Firstly, a unified fission model is extended to study the two-proton radioactivity of ground states of nuclei, a good agreement between the experimental half-lives and the calculated ones is found. Meanwhile, the two-proton radioactivity half-lives of the ground states of some probable candidates are predicted within this model by inputting the released energies taken from the AME2020 table. It is shown that the predictive accuracy of the half-lives is comparable to that of other models. Then, the two-proton radioactivity of the excited states of

^{14}O,

^{17,18}Ne,

^{22}Mg,

^{29}S and

^{94}Ag is discussed within the unified fission model and two analytical formulas. It is found that the experimental half-lives of the excited states are reproduced better within the unified fission model. Furthermore, the two formulas are not suitable for the study of the two-proton radioactivity of excited states because not only their physical picture deviates from the mechanism of a quantum tunneling but also the parameters involved are obtained without including the experimental data of the excited states.

A systematic survey of the accurate measurements of heavy-ion fusion cross sections at extreme sub-barrier energies has been carried out by using the coupled-channels (CC) theory that is based on the proximity formalism.

**Abstract:**

Experimental data sets of nuclear reactions have been systematically collected in hundreds of thousands and are still growing rapidly. The data and their correlations compose a complex system, which underpins nuclear science and technology. We model the nuclear reaction data as weighted evolving networks for the purpose of data verification and validation. The networks are employed to study the growing cross-section data of a neutron induced threshold reaction (n,2n) and photoneutron reaction. In the networks, nodes are the historical data and weights of the links are the relative deviation between the data points. It is found that the networks exhibit the small-world behavior, and their discovery processes are well described by the Heaps law. What makes the networks novel is the mapping relation between the network properties and the salient features of the database: Heaps exponent corresponds to the exploration efficiency of the specific data set, the distribution of the edge-weights corresponds to the global uncertainty of the data set, and the mean node weight corresponds to the uncertainty of the individual data point. This new perspective to understand the database would be helpful for nuclear data analysis and compilation.

**Abstract:**

The scission point model is improved by considering the excitation-dependent liquid drop model to calculate mass distributions for neutron-induced actinide nuclei fission. Excitation energy effects are influencing the deformations of light fragment and heavy fragment. The improved scission point model shows a significant advance with regard to accuracy for calculating pre-neutron-emission mass distributions of neutron-induced typical actinide fission with incident-neutron-energies up to 99.5 MeV. The theoretical frame assures that the improved scission point model is suitable for evaluating of the fission fragments mass distributions, which will guide for studying the fission physics, designing nuclear fission engineering and nuclear transmutation system.
