Abstract

Abstract In an attempt to understand the backbending phenomena observed in the rare-earth region a model representing an extension of the rotational alignment scheme has been investigated. It is found, even including attenuation of the Coriolis matrix elements and taking into account the sensitivity of the results on the single-particle spectrum used, that it appears at the moment impossible to decide whether such a model ultimately may lead to an explanation of the observed changes in the nuclear moment of inertia.
