SUPERCOMPUTING — The real oxygen-23 .
To really understand the mundane world we live in we must also
understand matter at the edge of the nuclear landscape.
Computational researchers have contributed to this understanding
with an intensive simulation of the short-lived oxygen-23 isotope.
Working with colleagues at the University of Tennessee and the
University of Oslo in Norway, the team helped overturn a decade-old
misconception about how this isotope is put together. Their work is
discussed in a recent edition of the journal Physical Review C.
