    Mass and Isotope Dependence of Limiting Temperatures for Hot Nuclei

    Full text link
    The mass and isotope dependence of limiting temperatures for hot nuclei are investigated. The predicted mass dependence of limiting temperatures is in good agreement with data derived from the caloric curve data. The predicted isotope distribution of limiting temperatures appears to be a parabolic shape and its centroid is not located at the isotope on the β\beta-stability line(T=0) but at neutron-rich side. Our study shows that the mass and isotope dependence of limiting temperatures depend on the interaction and the form of surface tension and its isopin dependence sensitively.Comment: 14 pages,11 figure
