Abstract

The successes of the nuclear shell model in explaining the stability properties of magic nuclei are challenged by the observation of rotational bands for which the sequential filling of single-particle energy levels of the spherical shell model are not respected. This Letter proposes criteria for identifying the shell-model configurations appropriate for describing such bands of states.
