Fission, Scission and Beyond

Ludovic Bonneau
T-16, LANL

In this talk I will give an overview of my activities at T16 on topics related to fission. First I will present the main calculated results of potential-energy surfaces in a self-consistent mean-field approach and their implications in low-energy fission. Then I will address the issue of defining the concept of scission and discuss recent results for fission observables in a simple model. Finally I will present the status of fission modeling in the reaction code McGNASH.
