Abstract:

The relation between two different models used to explain the properties of complex nuclei at low energies is treated. One is the nuclear shell model which starts from the picture of nucleons moving independently of each other in a central potential which represents the average effect of all the interactions between the different nucleons. The second is the collective rotational model which pictures the nucleus as a rigid body deformed from spherical shape. The free rotation of this rigid body leads to rotational spectra E equals a constant LL12I. The problem is solved of how to introduce an extra residual interaction between particles into the shell model Hamiltonian to obtain rotational spectra within the framework of a shell model calculation.
