General Comments:

Highlighted theoretical analyses:

2011Fo02: Reanalyzed data on 15C levels populated in 13C(t,p)15C and interpreted results to revise predictions on 15F levels.

2010Mu03: Parameters of the lowest Jπ=1/2+ and 5/2+ states were analyzed via the S-matrix pole method.

2015Gr04: Analysis, which focused on 16Ne, found the 15F ground state should lie near Eres(p+14O)=1.39 to 1.42 MeV.

2006Ca08, 2015Fr04: Analyzed the 14C+n system and then used multichannel algebraic scattering theory to predict resonances in the mirror 15F nucleus. See also 2007Ca31.

2005Ba73: α microscopic cluster model was developed that was tuned to the 14C+n system and used to predict the 14O+p scattering reaction and 15F resonances. Results are compared and found in agreement with an R-matrix analysis of experimental observations.

2005Fo10: The lowest t=3/2 and Jπ=1/2+ and 5/2+ states of the α=15 quartet are analyzed in a (0+2)h|w shell model.

2006Fo16: The definition of resonance energy is explored by considering three different parameters that may define the position: "(a) the energy at which the appropriate cross section peaks, (b) the energy at which the nuclear phase shift has the value δ=π/2, and (c) the energy at which the magnitude of the internal wave function or the derivative of the phase shift dδ/dE is a maximum. " Then, discussion on various α=15 and 16 states and analysis of the IMME mass relation are used to constrain predicted values for poorly known 15O, 15F and 16F states.

General theoretical analyses:

Other theoretical analyses relevant to 15F include general calculations on mass and structure properties in (1978Gu10,1993Po11,2008Qi04,2013Ci04). More detailed analyses considering pairs of mirror nuclides, Coulomb shifts, Thomas-Ehrman shifts and other detailed relationships are found in (1988Co15,1995Fo18,1997Gr18,1999Og11,1999Ts06,2013Fo22).

Other experimental results:

15F is not strongly populated in 12C(3He,π-) reactions at E(3He)=283 MeV (1986Mi25) or 235 MeV (1984Bi08).
