2 In recent years a great attention has been paid to the study o f the f ragmentation of the simplest nuclear exci t ati ons over many nuclear levels at intermediate and high excitation energies. It is well-known that the fragmentation of fe\~quasipar t icle states plays an important role in t he def i ning many physicall y observabl. quantities such as the spreading wi dth o f giant resonances, the El - nnd Ml - radiative strength func t i ons, the neutron s trenrlh (ufwtions, etc. Thi'lt is why the study of this phenomenon hn~ rly~d much interes t of both experimenters and t heoreticians.

3 In the lying and and g 7 mentation nucleus. present paper we s tudy the damping of several highl ow- lying neutron subshells such as 3 р 3, i, j 5 in the 39 U. We also calculate the fragof а large number of proton subshells in the 3 7Np The model and methods for solving its main equations were described in ref.' 3. In this paper we write out onl y the formulae rej:uired for the understanding of the obtained results. In ref. 3 it was shown that the fragment ation of one-quasiparticle states in deformed nuclei may Ье studied within а simplified model. The wave function of the nonrotational state with the angular momentum projection into t he nucleus symmetry axis К and parity " of an odd-a deformed nucleus has the form: i + i ++ Ч'. (К ) = -~!~Срара + ~D (aq) }'' 0,,[ а Р g g g where '' 0 is the wave function of the ground state of а douьly even nucleus having one nucleon less than the studied one; i is the number of the state, g : vл~j, j being the number of the root of the secuar equation for. the one-phonon state of multipolarity Л~. The set of quantum numbers for any single-particle state is denoted Ьу (va) and for states with fixed К" Ьу (ра) with а=+. The wave function () is normalized to unity. The structure of one-phonon states is calculated in the RPA. The quantity (С~) is de termined f r om the wave function normalization (). The secular equation for defining the energies 77i symbolically can Ье written as F (77. ) ~ О. р ( ) () Ср(77) = ~.

The сюiсе of ~ is discussed in ref J 3 ; here we take ~ = 0.4 MeV. One can write (3) in the form '3/ : с~ (77) =... Im! J. " Fp(7J + im) In the simplified model te function C (r ) - р has the following form: ~ Г(77) с (7)) = Р w ( f(p)- у(77) -.,.,) + (М) Г(.,.,) were f (р) г (7)) = + ~ g s the ener gy of the one-quasiparticlc s tate г Е_!

Alongside with the known low-lying collective quadrupole and octupole phonons we consider таnу weakly collectivized phonons as well as high-lying phonons like the giant resonances. The phonon space of the model is large enough and the good description of the density of highly excited states 7 proves its completeness. We determine the single-particle fragmentation in deformed nuclei using the direct calculational method of averaged characteristics without а detailed calculation of each individual state. Following refs. 3, we construct the s~rength function of the energy distribution of the one-quasiparticle state р in the form "" "' Here p(g) = с ( ') + w л~j is tle cncr gy of thc phonon state, Грg defines the iпt e r ac ti on of s t ates р and v through phonon Л~j With the str cngth di s tribution of the single-partic l e state с: (77) we can now cal culate the fragmentation of the spherical subshell denoted Ьу the quantum numbers nfj over many nuclear levels in а deformed nuc l eu s. It is known that the static deformation resul ts in а splitting of the subshell nfj on j + / suьlevels with the momentum projections into the nuclear symmetry axis К= /, 3/,..., j. The subshell strength is spread over many single-particle states with different К.

5 and lj5; in fig.. Figure shows that the strength distribution of g 7 ; - and 3р 3 ; -subshells inside their strength location regions is rather uniform, i.e., the distribution is characterised Ьу а large second moment. The strength location region of g7/ -subshell amounts to 7 MeV whereas such а quantity for the 3р 3 ; - subshell has the range of - 9 MeV. Thus, the 3р 3 ; -subshell is said to Ье fragmented stronger than the g 7 ; -subshell. In fig. it is easily s een that the ; - subshell fragments stronger than the lj 6 ; one (the location region of strength for li ; -subshell amounts to 8 MeV, and for the j 5 ; to -б MeV only). Figure shows an interacting feature: the strength distribution of these subshells is charact e rised Ьу а big concentration of strength in the low region of t he excitation ener gies. Thus, almost 40% of the total strength of li / -subshell and up to 50% of the total lj 5/ -strength are exhausted in the region of :S: MeV of exci tat.ion energies, whereas, it is clear from fig., only - 0% of the total s trength f or the 3р 3 ; - and up to 30% for the g 7 ; -subshells is in the same region of excitation energies. Such а behaviour of the distribution of high- lying and lowl ying subshells strength may Ье easily understood on the bases of the general regularities of fragmentation of single-particle s tates in deformed nuclei. In fig.3, we present t!e calculated relative positions of subshells to the Fermi level in the 39 u nucleus (in the right-hand side of energy axis) and in the 37 Np nucleus (in the left part of fig.3). Our calculations show that, as а result, t!e hig-lying subshells, such as g, 3р of the neutron scheme and r 7 ;, d 3 ;, lh,' of the proton scheme, concentrate their strength mainly in some ( or 3) singl e-particle states lying far from the f e rmi level. At the same time the low-lying subshells sucl as lj 5 i, li of the neutron scheme and h 9 : of the proton scleme lave their str ength concentrating in several (4 or 5) stat es lying close to the Fermi level. According to the ge neral r egularit i es o f fragmentation of single-particle states in deformed nuclei, the farther the state is from the Fermi level the stronger it fragmeпts. That is why such а behaviour of subshell strengtl distributions is observed in figs. and. We present in figs.4 and 5 the str e ngth functions S 0 ~(~ for the lh 9 ; - and f 7 / - subshe s i n the 3 7 Np nuc l eus. The f 7 ; -subshell is the high-ly ing and the h 9 ; -subshel l is the l ow-lying ones. It is c lear that the f 7 / -subshell is fragmented stronger than the lh 9/ At the end we show our calculated r esul t s for the spectroscopic factors Snfj (7) for several sbshells in the 39U and 37 Np nuclei in the taьle. These spectroscopic factors may Ье experimentally obtained in the nucleon transfer reactions of (d, t) -type.
