By J.W. Negele, Erich W. Vogt

This quantity includes 3 overview articles written via a few of the key specialists on this planet and concerning 3 diversified difficulties of significant present curiosity for nuclear physics. One article offers with the beginning of spin within the quark version for neutrons and protons, as measured with beams of electrons and muons. one other offers with the present proof for liquid-to-gas part transitions in relativistic collisions of nuclei. The 3rd bargains with the very strange bands of strength degrees of very excessive spin that are came across whilst nuclei in attaining a really excessive rotation.

Example text

Similarly to that for the hydrogen atom, the Schrodinger equation for the deuteron can be solved reducing the two-body problem to a one-body problem that has the reduced mass of the system and whose distance from the origin is the distance between the two bodies. 31) is the reduced mass and V(r) is the potential that describes the force between the proton (mass Mp) and the neutron (mass Mn). The difference from the hydrogen atom is that the nuclear potential V(r) is not well known, but, for a first approach, we shall use a very simple form for that potential.

Therefore, the deuteron wavefunction can only be a combination of the 35 1 and 3Dl states (even parity) or a combination of the IP l and 3PI states (odd parity) . We should verify which of those combinations represents better the ground state wave function of the deuteron with the observed properties. To build the wavefunction it will be necessary to consider that it is an eigenfunction of the total angular momentum of the system, which is obtained by the addition (coupling) of three vectors, the spins of each nucleon and the orbital angular momentum.

94) is convenient: if V(r) is spherically symmetric, the angular momentum is a constant of motion, and states of different values of the angular momentum contribute in an independent way to the scattering. 95) 1= 0 where jl(X) are spherical Bessel functions and PI( cos e) the Legendre polynomials. 94). This means that the plane wave eikr can be understood as the sum of a set of partial waves, each one with orbital angular momentum jl(T+l) 11. The terms j[ (kr) PI ( cos e) specify the radial and angular dependence of the partial wave [, the weight of the contribution of each term being given by the amplitude 21 + 1 and the phase factor il.
