Calculation of Spin Cutoff Parameters Using Moment Techniques
Spectral distribution methods are often applied to the calculation of nuclear level densities. If we require not simply the total number of levels at each energy but also their distribution in spin, we need to know the spin-cutoff parameter and its energy dependence. Recent calculations of the spin-cutoff parameter have shown qualitative agreement with data. Reasons for the remaining discrepancies will be discussed and procedures for improving agreement between theory and experiment will be suggested.
