Elementary-Particle Models of the Two-Nucleon Force

  • G. E. Brown


Let me begin my talk by saying that little progress was made in understanding the origin of the nucleon-nucleon force from the time of great activity in the early fifties until recently. The activity in 1950–1953 was concerned with incorporating Yukawa’s idea of meson exchange into half-way respectable formalism. Names like Levy, Klein, Brueckner and Watson are associated with these developments. The one-pion-exchange term, held responsible for the long-range part of the nucleon-nucleon interaction, was incorporated into the phase-shift analyses, by the Livermore and Yale groups, and found to enable significantly better fits of the data.
