The Effective Two-Body Interaction in Finite Nuclei and its Calculation

  • Bruce R. Barrett


The calculation of the effective interaction and of other effective operators in finite nuclei is an important link in the chain connecting microscopic phenomena, such as the nucleon-nucleon scattering phase shifts, with nuclear phenomena, such as cross sections and excitation energies. But, like all links in a chain, it depends upon the other links for its support. As we will see, the calculation of the effective interaction, which is part of the link having to do with the many-particle shell model (MPSM), is strongly dependent upon links having to do with the theory of the nucleon-nucleon interaction, the treatment of strong short-range correlations and the derivation of the single-particle shell model (SPSM).
