Classical microscopic description of particle cluster collisions: application to heavy ion collisions
A classical microscopic description of the collision between two bound particle clusters, interacting via a suitable two body force is presented with a view to extend the analogy to nuclear collisions. It is shown that with a proper choice of the parameters of the two body force, the model calculations can bring out qualitatively all the essential features of low energy heavy ion collisions such as complete fusion, deep inelastic scattering and nucleon transfers. The model avoids some of the limitations of purely hydrodynamic descriptions connected with the shape parametrization, compressibility and viscosity effects, etc.
