Abstract

We discuss predictions made by large scale calculations using the realistic realization of phenomenological nuclear mean-field theory. The calculations indicate that certain zirconium nuclei are tetrahedrally symmetric in their ground states. After a short overview of past research into nuclear tetrahedral symmetry we analyse the predictive capacities of the method and focus on the 96Zr nucleus, which is expected to be tetrahedral in its ground state.
