In the standard model QCD Lagrangian, a term of

**Abstract:**

A new method based on the maximum entropy principle for reconstructing the parton distribution function (PDF) from moments is proposed. Unlike traditional methods, the new method does not require any artificial assumptions. For the case of moments with errors, we introduce Gaussian functions to soften the constraints of moments. Through a series of tests, the effectiveness and reconstruction efficiency of this new method are evaluated comprehensively, demonstrating that this method is reasonable and can achieve high-quality reconstruction with at least the first six moments as input. Finally, we select a set of lattice quantum chromodynamics (QCD) results regarding moments as input and provide reasonable reconstruction results for the pion.

**Abstract:**

Recent measurements of the two neutrino double beta decay high precision electron spectra, combined with charge exchange or

*β*-decay experimental data, have revealed severe constraints across current nuclear many body calculations. Our calculations show that the quasi-particle random phase approximation (QRPA) approach can adequately reproduce the measured spectra for the two open shell nuclei,

**Abstract:**

Recently, the synthesis of new elements above

*Z*= 118 has been a hot topic in nuclear physics. Meanwhile, the

*α*-decay chain is expected to be the unique tool to identify these heaviest nuclei. We have systematically calculated the

*α*-decay energies and half-lives on the same footing for superheavy nuclei (SHN) within the cluster model along with a slightly modified Woods-Saxon (W.S.) potential as the nuclear potential. Based on the available experimental data, the key radius parameter (

*R*) in the

*α*-core potential is determined via the systematic trend from the

*α*-decay and isotopic chains. The

*α*-decay energy (

*α*-core wave function. The theoretical values and experimental data are found to be in excellent agreement for the nuclei

*α*-decay chains for new elements

*Z*= 119 and

*Z*= 120 can be useful in ongoing or forthcoming experiments.

**Abstract:**

A new empirical formula for the astrophysical

*S*-factor has been suggested as a function of the Coulomb interaction parameter, center of mass energy, and barrier height. About 22 fusion reactions with

^{40,48}Ca as projectiles were considered for different targets, leading to compound nuclei with atomic and mass numbers varying between 40

*S*-factor. This study's findings showed better agreement with those of available experiments when compared to Wong's formula. The present work leads to a smaller standard deviation value than Wong's formula when used to correlate the experimental data of calcium-induced fusion reactions. Wong's formula provides a good approximation of fusion cross-sections when the center of mass energy is below the fusion barrier when compared to above the fusion barrier.

**Abstract:**

In this study, we utilize the complexity-action duality to study the evolution of complexity in a holographic QCD model at finite temperature and chemical potential. By inserting a fundamental string as a probe, we investigated the properties of complexity growth in this Einstein-Maxwell-scalar gravity system, which is affected by the string velocity, chemical potential, and temperature. Our results show that the complexity growth is maximized when the probe string is stationary, and it decreases as the velocity of the string increases. When the string approaches relativistic velocities, the complexity growth always increases monotonically with respect to the chemical potential. Furthermore, we find that the complexity growth can be used to identify phase transitions and crossovers in the model.

**Abstract:**

Key nuclear inputs for the astrophysical

*r*-process simulations are the weak interaction rates. Consequently, the accuracy of these inputs directly affects the reliability of nucleosynthesis modeling. The majority of the stellar rates, used in simulation studies are calculated by invoking the Brink-Axel (BA) hypothesis. The BA hypothesis assumes that the strength functions of all parent excited states are the same as for the ground state, only shifted in energies. However, the BA hypothesis has to be tested against microscopically calculated state-by-state rates. In this project, we study the impact of the BA hypothesis on calculated stellar

**Abstract:**

In this study, a microscopic shell-model description of the low-lying collective states in the weakly deformed nucleus

*γ*, and

*β*quasibands is obtained without the adjustable kinetic energy term. Furthermore,

*γ*degrees of freedom are shown to play a crucial role in the description of spectroscopy of this nucleus. A modified

*γ*-unstable type of odd-even staggering, observed experimentally between the states of the quasi-

The findings of this study propose an alternative interpretation of the fundamental question regarding the nature of low-energy vibrations, as well as the emergence of deformation and collectivity in weakly deformed atomic nuclei.

**Abstract:**

General relativity has been very successful since its proposal more than a century ago. However, various cosmological observations and theoretical consistency still motivate us to explore extended gravity theories. Horndeski gravity stands out as one attractive theory by introducing only one scalar field. Here we formulate the post-Newtonian effective field theory of Horndeski gravity and investigate the conservative dynamics of inspiral compact binary systems. We calculate the leading effective Lagrangian for a compact binary and obtain the periastron advance per period. In particular, we apply our analytical calculation to two binary systems, PSR B 1534+12 and PSR J0737-3039, and constrain the relevant model parameters. This theoretical framework can also be systematically extended to higher orders.

**Abstract:**

Black holes (BHs) exhibiting coordinate singularities but lacking essential singularities throughout the spacetime are referred to as regular black holes (RBHs). The initial formulation of RBHs was presented by Bardeen, who considered the Einstein equation coupled with a nonlinear electromagnetic field. In this study, we investigate the gravitational perturbations, including the axial and polar sectors, of the Bardeen (Anti-) de Sitter black holes. We derive the master equations with source terms for both axial and polar perturbations and subsequently compute the quasinormal modes (QNMs) through numerical methods. For the Bardeen de Sitter black hole, we employ the 6th-order WKB approach. The numerical results reveal that the isospectrality is broken in this case. Conversely, the QNM frequencies are calculated using the HH method for the Bardeen Anti-de Sitter black hole.
