Title: Nuclear fission: Past, present and future

Speaker: Prof. Santanu Pal, Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre, Kolkata

Abstract: Discovered about 75 years ago, nuclear fission continues to be an important area of research in nuclear physics. Through experimental and theoretical investigations of fission, it has now become possible to study nuclear properties from low to high excitations and at extreme deformations. A gross overview of certain features of nuclear fission will be presented.
