Part III Relativistic and Mean Field Approaches to Hadron-Nucleus Interactions
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 243)

Abstract

A critical overview is presented of several approaches to the nuclear mean field which share the common feature of claiming that the Dirac equation is more appropriate than the Schrödinger equation for the description of the average nucleon-nucleus interaction. The discussion bears on the Dirac phenomenology, renormalizable Lagrangian models, the relativistic Brueckner-Hartree-Fock approximation and the relativistic impulse approximation. Emphasis is deliberately put on open problems rather on successes.
