Abstract

The application of the sextic oscillator is proposed in the Bohr HamUtonian to describe the phase transition between the spherical and γ-unstable shape phases. It is shown that exact residts can be obtained for the energy eigenvalues and wave functions of the low-lying levels, as well as for electric quadrupole transition rates between them. The 134Ba nucleus and the even Ru isotope chain are considered as examples. Possible generalizations of the model are also outlined.
