The region of heavy calcium isotopes forms the frontier of experimental and theoretical nuclear structure research where the basic concepts of nuclear physics are put to stringent test. The recent discovery of the extremely neutron-rich nuclei around ^{60}Ca O. B. Tarasov et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 121, 022501 (2018)10.1103/PhysRevLett.121.022501] and the experimental determination of masses for ^{55-57}Ca S. Michimasa et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 121, 022506 (2018)10.1103/PhysRevLett.121.022506… Expand
