Part of the Springer Proceedings in Physics book series (SPPHY, volume 58)


The interplay between collective and statistical features in nuclear spectroscopy and nuclear reactions is discussed. Collectivity and stochasticity appear as the only two alternative forms of nuclear motion. They must be considered as equally important and they relate to fundamental aspects of classical Hamiltonian dynamics: regularity versus chaos.
