    • Abstract


      We review the current status of the nuclear matter (N=Z and no Coulomb interaction) incompressibility coefficient, Knm, and describe the theoretical and the experimental methods used to determine Knm from properties of compression modes in nuclei. In particular we consider the long standing problem of the conflicting results obtained for Knm, deduced from experimental data on excitation cross sections for the isoscalar giant monopole resonance (ISGMR) and data for the isoscalar giant dipole resonance (ISGDR).
