where k = l(l + 1) and l is the angular quantum number.
From the right plot, we see that, with the increase of angular quantum number l, the maximum of the effective potential also increases.
For a given principal quantum number n, both the real and the imaginary parts of the frequency decrease with increasing b; on the other hand, the real part of the frequency increases significantly with the angular quantum number b, while the imaginary part also increases slightly with increasing b.

The pseudospin symmetry is referred to as a quasidegeneracy of single nucleon doublets with nonrelativistic quantum number (n, l, j = 1 + 1/2) and (n - 1, 1 + 2, j = l + 3/2), where n, l, and j are single nucleon radial, orbital, and total angular quantum numbers [3] and it was shown that the exact pseudospin symmetry occurs in the Dirac equation when d[summation](r)/dr = 0; that is, [summation](r) = V(r) + S(r) = [c.sub.ps] = const., where V(r) and S(r) are repulsive vector potential and attractive scalar potential, respectively.
