Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Systematic calculations of superheavy region from Z = 100 to Z = 150 and N/Z ratio ranging from 1.19 to 2.70 have been carried out within the framework of the Relativistic Hartree-Bogolyubov model. It has been shown that the possible upper limit on the periodic table could be Z = 146, which is at variance with predictions of sophisticated atomic many-body calculations.
