In previous chapters the nucleus was described as a collection of non-interacting nucleons in a mean-field potential. The wave function of a nuclear state was taken to be a Slater determinant corresponding to a definite way of placing the valence nucleons in the mean-field single-particle orbitals. In this way the energy of a nuclear state was fully determined by the energies of the occupied single-particle orbitals.
