Relativistic Fermi-Gas Model for Nucleus

Spin-half fermions are considered to be limited in a spherical potential well with periodic boundary conditions. The whole system is treated like a relativistic Fermi Gas. Solving the corresponding Dirac equation, the density of states, the Fermi energy, the average energy, the density of states of nucleons and the total energy of the ground-state are obtained.
