  The Nuclear Many-Body Problem. It is the aim of this book to describe in concise form our present theoretical understanding of the nuclear many-body problem/5(6). 1 The Liquid Drop Model.- Introduction.- The Semi-empirical Mass Formula.- Deformation Parameters.- Surface Oscillations About a Spherical Shape.- Rotations and Vibrations for Deformed Shapes.- The Bohr Hamiltonian.- The Axially Symmetric Case.- The Asymmetric Rotor.- Nuclear Fission.- Stability of Rotating Liquid Drops.- 2 The Shell Model.- . The interdisciplinary aspects of the many-body problem are also discussed. Recent experimental data are examined in light of state-of-the-art calculations. Recent advances in several broad areas of theoretical structure are covered, making the book ideal as a supplementary textbook.   It is the aim of this book to describe in concise form our present theoretical understanding of the nuclear many-body problem. The presen tation of the enormous amount of material that has accumulated in this field over the last few decades may be divided into two broad categories: One can either concentrate on 5/5(2).

COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.   This book provides a comprehensive overview of some key developments in the understanding of the nucleon-nucleon interaction and nuclear many-body theory. The main problems at the level of meson exchange physics have largely been solved, and we now have an effective nucleon-nucleon interaction. In the Generator Coordinate Method (GCM), the many-body wave function is a linear superposition of (generally non-orthogonal) many-body states (the generator states) labeled by a few collective. Such topics do not require the knowledge of modern nuclear theory that is beautifully described in many books, such as The Nuclear Many Body Problem by P. Ring and P Schuck. Intentionally, we have not gone into such developments. In fact, even if nuclear physics had stopped, say, in or , practically all of its applications would exist.

An expert and illuminating review of the leading models of nuclear structure: effective field theories based on quantum chromodynamics; ab initio models based on Monte Carlo methods employing effective nucleon-nucleon interactions; diagonalization and the Monto Carlo shell model; non-relativistic and relativistic mean-field theory and its extensions. The Nuclear Many-Body Problem (Nato Science Series Ii: Mathematics, Physics And Chemistry) Paperback – Febru Price: $ Other properties of astrophysical interest such as the spin susceptibility of neutron matter and the symmetry energy are also discussed. A new homework problem is proposed to test the modern many–body techniques with a nuclear potential which includes . The book focuses on relativistic and particle physics, intermediate energy physics, nuclear, atomic, and molecular physics, and chemistry. The selection first offers information on nucleon-nucleon interaction in applications, including derivation of the nucleon-nucleon potential, nuclear many-body problem, and classic nuclear structure.
