Title: Exploring the terra incognita and its emergent phenomena at the edge of nuclear stability
Abstract: Have you ever wondered which combinations of protons and neutrons can produce an atomic nucleus stable with respect to nucleon(s) emission? Surprisingly, answering this question remains a driving motivation in low-energy nuclear physics. With the advent of radioactive beam facilities such as the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), thousands of new isotopes will be discovered in the nuclear terra incognita (unknown land), but challenges are awaiting as new emergent phenomena appear when approaching the edge of nuclear stability. In this talk, I will give a tour of modern research on exotic nuclei, present some of the current challenges facing the community, and conclude with a personal perspective on the future of the field.
