Effective Interactions and Reaction Dynamics

  • J. R. Comfort


Consideration is given to the effects of strong coupling of the nucleon elastic-scattering channel with other reaction channels. Pickup channels are found to be much more important than inelastic couplings in a coupled-channels environment. For high energies, however, the conventional optical-model potential simulates the coupling effects rather well. At lower energies (E≲,50 MeV), coupled-channels effects can be quite significant and the problem is made worse by difficulties regarding the treatment of intermediate channels.
