From the NN interaction to nuclear structure and reactions

We present a novel approach for the treatment of realistic nucleon-nucleon interactions in nuclear many-body systems. A unitary correlation operator is used to explicitly introduce short-range central and tensor correlations in many-body states. The correlated interaction is used as an effective interaction in nuclear structure calculations. Results for Lithium isotopes including proton and neutron distributions, radii as well as magnetic moments and quadrupole moments are shown. Molecular resonances in the 16O−16O system are given as a first application in reaction theory.
