We present a simple model for the heavy ion optical potential based on the convolution of target and projectile densities with a suitably chosen nucleon-nucleon effective interaction. This model is shown to be appropriate for a number of low energy peripheral processes, such as elastic scattering and one and two particle transfer reactions. Application of the method to cluster states in light nuclei and relativistic heavy ion interactions is also considered.
