The Relativistic Nuclear Many-Body Problem

  • J. D. Walecka
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 139)


These lectures are based on a book “THE RELATIVISTIC NUCLEAR MANY-BODY PROBLEM” written with Brian Serot which will appear as volume 16 of the series Advances in Nuclear Physics edited by J. W. Negele and E. Vogt [R1]. I am distributing copies of the table of contents.


Nuclear Matter Vector Meson Lagrangian Density Feynman Rule Baryon Density 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
