A Unified Theory of the Nucleus by K. Wildermuth


A Unified Theory of the Nucleus by K. Wildermuth

The purpose of this monograph is to describe a microscopic nuclear theory which can be used to consider all low-energy nuclear phenomena from a unified viewpoint. In this theory, the Pauli principle is completely taken into account and translation ally invariant wave functions are always employed. Also, this theory is quite flexible; it can be utilized to study reactions initiated not only by nucleons but also by arbitrary composite particles. Throughout this monograph, we have endeavoured to keep the underlying physical ideas as easily comprehensible as possible. Consequently, it becomes frequently necessary to sacrifice mathematical rigour in favour of clarity in presenting these ideas. In this way, it is our hope that this monograph could be useful to many research physicists in the nuclear field, experimentalists and theorists alike. In chapters 1 through 4, the formulation of this theory is presented. Numerical examples concerning bound-state, scattering, and reaction calculations are mainly described in chapters 5 through 7. In chapters 8 through IS we discuss, within the framework of this theory, general properties of nuclear systems. Finally, in chapters 16 and 17, we show in specific cases how one can achieve, without carrying out explicit calculations, a qualitative or even semi-quantitative understanding of these cases by applying the general physical concepts contained inherently in this theory.
