By B. M. Spicer (auth.), Michel Baranger, Erich Vogt (eds.)

The goal of Advances in Nuclear Physics is to supply evaluation papers which chart the sector of nuclear physics with a few regularity and completeness. We outline the sphere of nuclear physics as that which offers with the constitution and behaviour of atomic nuclei. even though many strong books and experiences on nuclear physics can be found, none makes an attempt to supply a assurance that's whilst carrying on with and fairly whole. many folks have felt the necessity for a brand new sequence to fill this hole and this can be the ambition of Advances in Nuclear Physics. The articles can be geared toward a large viewers, from examine scholars to lively study employees. the choice of issues and their therapy could be various however the uncomplicated point of view can be pedagogical. some time past 20 years the sector of nuclear physics has completed its personal id, occupying a significant place among easy particle physics on one aspect and atomic and sturdy nation physics at the different. Nuclear physics is striking either by means of its solidarity, which it derives from its concise obstacles, and by means of its striking range, which stems from the multiplicity of experimental methods and from the complexity of the nucleon-nucleon strength. Physicists focusing on one element of this strongly unified, but very advanced, box locate it important to stick well-informed of the opposite features. this offers a powerful motivation for a accomplished sequence of reviews.

However, the values obtained by this method compare rather badly with experiment. Two different approaches have been used to include, in detail, the effects of continuum states in the theoretical photonuclear cross section. Raynal, Melkanoff, and Sawada(75) consider the specific case of the 0 16 giant resonance with the limitation that the calculation includes only configurations with one particle in the continuum. There exists then one continuum per channel, and each of these brings an integral equation; this leads to a system of coupled integral equations equal in number to the number of channels allowed.

For example, if V is the nucleon-nucleon force, the matrix element (ph; JM 1 Vip' h' ; J'M') between two particle-hole states may be written, by using the Wigner-Eckart theorem, (ph; JM I Vlp'h'; J'M') = C(JMOO I J'M') (ph; J II = (ph; J II V II p'h'; J') Vllp'h'; J') (32) where (ph; J II V lip' h' ; J') is the reduced matrix element of the interaction and is independent of projection quantum numbers.
