The Two – Body Random Ensemble in Nuclei

  title={The Two – Body Random Ensemble in Nuclei},
  author={Thomas Papenbrock and Hans A. Weidenm{\"u}ller},
Combining analytical and numerical methods, we investigate properties of the two–body random ensemble (TBRE). We compare the TBRE with the Gaussian orthogonal ensemble of random matrices. Using the geometric properties of the nuclear shell model, we discuss the information content of nuclear spectra, and gain insight in the difficulties encountered when… CONTINUE READING
