Effective Interactions

  • J. P. Elliott
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 67)


Many different nucleon-nucleon interactions have been used in nuclear structure calculations and the aim of these lectures is to describe and compare some of the more important interactions and to relate them where possible to the real nucleon-nucleon interaction. In practice different interactions have been used depending on whether one is fitting to total binding energies and densities with a Hartree Fock (HF) calculation or fitting to spectra and spectroscopic data in a shell model calculation. Both types of calculation will be discussed after two preliminary sections concerned with notation and with the philosophy underlying the use of model spaces and effective interactions.
