Description

Nuclear mass measurements and neutron matter theory tightly constrain the parameters SV and L of the nuclear symmetry energy. Corroboration can be found from measurements of the neutron skin thicknesses and dipole polarizabilities of neutron-rich nuclei, as well as astrophysical measurements of the neutron star radius.
