Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 189)


The N-soliton solution of the Korteweg-de Vries equation, in an extended from, is utilized to represent a reflectionsless nuclear mean field potential in which the N-empirical bound state energies are associated with the solutions, and formulate generally the problem of nuclear structure, reactions, and two-nucleon interactions from an inverse scattreing theory approach.
