Single-Particle Motion in Nuclei

  title={Single-Particle Motion in Nuclei},
  author={C. Mahaux and R. Sartor},
The shell model and the optical model play a central role in the description of nuclear structure and of nuclear reactions. In both models, the average nucleon-nucleus interaction is described by a mean field. This field is complex in the case of the optical model and real in the case of the shell model. Here, we shall consider a unified treatment in which the shell-model potential is also complex and is the continuation of the optical-model potential. This will enable one to construct the… Expand
