Two-Quasiparticle Mixing in Odd-Odd Nuclei

  • Jouni Suhonen
Part of the Theoretical and Mathematical Physics book series (TMP)


In Chap. 16 the residual Hamiltonian was used to mix proton-proton and neutron—neutron two-quasiparticle configurations. The resulting wave functions described states in even-even open-shell nuclei. In this chapter we develop a corresponding formalism, the proton-neutron QTDA, for mixing proton-neutron two-quasiparticle configurations. This mixing produces wave functions that describe states in odd-odd open-shell nuclei. The quasiparticles are obtained from a BCS calculation for an even-even reference nucleus next to the odd-odd nucleus of interest.
