The Nucleon-Nucleon Interaction and Nucleon-Nucleus Scattering

  • W. G. Love
  • M. A. Franey
  • F. Petrovich


A derivation of a t-matrix interaction from the free nucleon-nucleon amplitudes is sketched and some of the most important characteristics of this operator for the excitation of spin modes are described. The nucleon and electromagnetic couplings to spin and current modes of the nucleus are cast in a longitudinal-transverse representation which displays explicitly the common and distinctive aspects of these interactions in the study of nuclear structure. A current 0 spin coupling present in the effective nucleon-nucleon interaction due to non-locality is described briefly and some of its possible implications for spin-observables are discussed. The derived nucleon-nucleon interaction is compared with the coupling predicted by a π+ρ exchange model and a few applications of the t-matrix interaction are made to transitions which illustrate some specific aspects of the coupling.
