Abstract

We propose a new candidate for nuclear shapes at subnuclear densities in analogy with polymer shapes. We then find that the new candidate, gyroid morphology, may appear near the transition point from a cylinder to a slab as well as that from a slab to a cylindrical hole. Since this analogy between the nuclear and polymer systems is not only qualitative but also quantitative, our findings may offer a new field of interest. Further details of this study are seen in our lately published letter [1].
