As the nucleon-nucleon interaction is a short range interaction, the potential [V.
Measuring transfer reactions, in particular 134Sn(d,p)135Sn, will allow to search for signatures of the existence of a new sub-shell closure at N=90 and to study, in this very neutron-rich region, the nucleon-nucleon interaction in the nuclear medium coupled to the continuum.
The mass of equivalent to the Higgs boson mass are obtained, the coupling constants in different types of interactions, the binding energy of the deuteron, triton, and alpha particles are defined, the possible ranges of alpha particles energies are identified, and dependence of the nucleon-nucleon interaction from a distance is explained.
The nucleon-nucleon interaction and the nuclear many-body problem; selected papers of Gerald E.
Most of the 26 papers are devoted to nuclear structure models and their derivation from the basic nucleon-nucleon interaction, in particular the shell model, the interacting boson model, and the cluster model.
Among the topics are the validity of random matrix theories for many-particle systems, the angular-momentum dependence of the density of states, group theory and the propagation of operator averages, electromagnetic sum rules by spectral distribution methods, compound-nuclear tests of time reversal invariance in the nucleon-nucleon interaction, strength functions and spreading widths of simple shell model configurations, and underlying symmetries of realistic interactions and the nuclear many-body problem.
On the experimental side, studies of the weak nucleon-nucleon interaction are confined to measurements of parity-violating observables which constitute a unique but usually tiny signature of the weak interaction.
