Physics of nuclear fusion, fission

  1. Oct 8, 2008 #1
    Hi everyone,

    want to know about the physics of nuclear fusion, fission and particle emission in nuclear reactions.
    Let's say that we collide two nuclei: 82Kr+48Ca at 5.5MeV/n energies,
    theory says that in this reaction these nuclei can fuse(with some probability) and form 130Ba, and since 130Ba will be excited,it will emit light particles or decay by different channels.There may be quasifission in the way to complete fusion or in they way of symmetric system,or decay after symmetrization, and also can be incomplete fusion or direct reaction,pre-equilibrium particle emission-theory says.
    so by what is governed the evolution of this kind of reactions?which physical quantities or factors play main role here?
