A relativistic description of nuclei

  • 12 Accesses


The usual Dirac-Hartree description of nuclei is extended to the case where Fock terms are included, with the addition ofπ- andϱ-meson degrees of freedom. Preliminary results show the important role played by theπ and the tensor ϱ coupling, and are in good agreement with the properties of finite nuclei.
