Self-Consistent Application of the Lane Model

The Lane model has been an appealing and successful technique for coupling the (p, p), (n, n), and (p,n) channels in a single calculation. However, detailed description has been more difficult with the additional constraints of fitting either all three channels or the (p, n) analyzing power. In our attempts to examine the ability of the Lane model to describe a complete set of data using a new search code, we find that consistent application of the model leads us to choose an approach which we believe to be more fundamental than those usually employed in similar calculations. In this paper we will review the more significant aspects and applications of the Lane model and indicate the developments which led us to our resent position. We include an application of the model to the Be(N,N) system, for which a fairly complete set of data has been obtained at our laboratory.
