Variational approach to many-body problems in finite nuclei

  • S. Rosati
I. The NN Interaction and the Many-Body Problem
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 137)


The present status of the variational approach to finite nuclei, based on correlated wave functions is briefly sketched. A general outline of the problem, and some of the results recently obtained for ligth nuclei are discussed. The variational technique is applied to calculate the relevant coefficients of the nuclear mass formula and estimates of the ground state energies of 16O and 40Ca are also given.
