Paper Abstract

We shall consider a critical phenomenon which corresponds to bifurcation in classical mechanics. It modifies the rotational motion regime due to the appearance or disappearance of the degeneracy in a rotational band at some critical value I equals Ic. The bifurcation is induced by nonlinear effects occurring due to the action of centrifugal or Coriolis forces. It is revealed both as the rearrangement of the rotational multiplet (RM) levels and as a qualitative change of the probabilities of electromagnetic transitions within the band.
