The Nuclear Mean Field and Many-Nucleon Configurations

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


After the two preceding chapters, throughout impregnated with messy-looking, though necessary mathematics, we are finally entering the realm of basic concepts of nuclear structure physics. While the preceding chapters may have been a shock to the reader not familiar with the fine details of angular momentum coupling, the present chapter should offer a soothing soft landing to the basic philosophy behind the nuclear shell model, namely the nuclear mean field.
