Challenges in Coupled-Channels Calculations of Heavy-Ion Fusion Reactions

Henning Esbensen

Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne IL 60439, USA


The approximations that are commonly made in coupled-channels calculations of heavy-ion fusion reactions are reviewed in order to show where uncertainties exist and improvements can be made. In particular, the failure in modeling the fusion at extreme subbarrier energies is discussed.
