# On the Mathematical Description of Light Nuclei by the Method of Resonating Group Structure

@article{Wheeler1937OnTM, title={On the Mathematical Description of Light Nuclei by the Method of Resonating Group Structure}, author={John Archibald Wheeler}, journal={Physical Review}, year={1937}, volume={52}, pages={1107-1122} }

The wave function for the composite nucleus is written as a properly, antisymmetrized combination of partial wave functions, corresponding to various possible ways of distributing the neutrons and protons into various groups, such as alpha-particles, di-neutrons, etc. The dependence of the total wave function on the intergroup separations is determined by the variation principle. The analysis is carried out in detail for the case that the configurations considered contain only two groups…
