We link the structure of nuclei around 100Sn, the heaviest doubly magic nucleus with equal neutron and proton numbers (N=Z=50), to nucleon-nucleon (NN) and three-nucleon (NNN) forces constrained by data of few-nucleon systems. Our results indicate that 100Sn is doubly magic, and we predict its quadrupole collectivity. We present precise computations of 101Sn based on three-particle–two-hole excitations of 100Sn, and we… Read More Structure of the Lightest Tin Isotopes
