Nuclear Matter with Nonrelativistic Potentials: Present Status

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 205)


The main purpose of these lectures is twofold. Firstly, we describe theoretical methods that have been devised to study the properties of nuclear matter, with particular emphasis on the ground state energy and on rearrangements of the perturbation expansion in powers of the strength of the nucleon-nucleon interaction. Secondly, we critically survey numerical results which have been published during the last few years.
