Progress in the nuclear spin physics studied by nuclear reactions is briefly reviewed with particular emphasis on the contributions of Munetake Ichimura and his research-group.
Much of his recent work was based on a comprehensive framework consisting of a distorted wave impulse approximation (DWIA) with response function calculated by a continuum random phase approximation(RPA).
We pay special attention to two contrasting problem.
One is the quenching of the total Gamow-Teller (GT) transition strength with respect to the model-independent GT sum rule (Ikeda's sum rule).
The other is the enhancement of the pionic modes at relative large momentum transfers as a precursor phenomenon of pion condensation.
A main aim of this review is to gain an overall understanding of the behavior of these spin-isospin modes.
Furthermore, recent developments in the isospin dependence of the spin-isospin residual interaction studied by the GT resonances for unstable nuclei as well as the tensor correlation effects observed in the spin-dipole resonances are also addressed.
