Nuclear Structure Physics connects to some of our fundamental questions about the creation of the universe and its basic constituents. At the same time, precise knowledge on the subject has led to the development of many important tools for humankind such as proton therapy and radioactive dating, among others. This book has chapters on some of the crucial and trending research topics in nuclear structure, including the nuclei lying on the extremes of spin, isospin and mass. A better theoretical understanding of these topics is important beyond the confines of the nuclear structure community. Additionally, the book will showcase the applicability and success of the different nuclear effective interaction parameters near the drip line, where hints for level reordering have already been seen, and where one can test the isospin-dependence of the interaction. The book offers comprehensive coverage of the most essential topics, including: Nuclear Structure of Nuclei at or Near Drip-Lines Synthesis challenges and properties of Superheavy nuclei Nuclear Structure and Nuclear models - Ab-initio calculations, cluster models, Shell-model/DSM, RMF, Skyrme Shell Closure, Magicity and other novel features of nuclei at extremes Structure of Toroidal, Bubble Nuclei, halo and other exotic nuclei These topics are not only very interesting from a theoretical nuclear physics perspective but are also quite complimentary for ongoing nuclear physics experimental programs worldwide. The book chapters, written by experienced and well-known researchers/experts, will be helpful for master students, graduate students and researchers and serve as a standard and up-to-date research reference book on the topics covered
