The pion has emerges as the main feature of nuclear structure beyond the traditional description in terms of neutrons and protons. It manifests itself in a number of areas which are normally only… Expand

Abstract A new formulation of the theory of nuclear reactions based on the properties of a generalized “optical” potential is presented. The real and imaginary part of this potential satisfy a… Expand

Abstract The effective Hamiltonian method for nuclear reactions described in an earlier paper with the same title, part I, is generalized so as to include all possible reaction types, as well as the… Expand

A unified picture of the relativistic single particle wave mechanics for both the spin 0 boson and the spin 1/2 h fermion is presented. The single particle equations discussed are the Klein-Gordon… Expand

The total cross section and the differential cross section for the inelastic scattering of neutrons are considered. It is assumed that the compound nucleus is sufficiently excited so that the… Expand

. A simple model is proposed for the description of the scattering and the compound nucleus formation by nucleons impinging upon complex nuclei. It is shown that, by making appropriate averages over… Expand
