An Effective Reaction Matrix Derived from Nuclear Matter Calculations

  • H. A. Bethe


I’m going to talk about the nuclear interaction as derived from nuclear matter theory. I have written here some of the concepts which I shall use
$${\rm {G = v - v}\frac{{Q}} {{e}}{G}}$$
$$ {\rm{G}\phi { = v}\psi} $$
. The first equation determines the so-called reaction matrix, G, which was introduced by Brueckner1 and which is supposed to be given. Q is the Pauli operator and e is the energy difference between the excited and normal states. The sum of the diagonal elements of the G-matrix gives the potential energy of a given piece of nuclear matter or of a finite nucleus.
