Abstract:

The one-pion-exchange and two-pion-exchange parts of the S-matrix for nucleon-nucleon scattering are calculate field-theoretically. The rescattering of virtual pions by nucleons and the pion-pion interaction between virtual pions are taken into account. The S-matrix is then decomposed into the partial-wave amplitudes, and the phase shifts are calculated. Numerical evaluations are carried out for the 310-Mev protonproton scattering, and the results are compared with the phase shifts obtained by analyzing the experimental data. Without contribution of the pion-pion interaction, the results are far from agreement with experiment because of too strong attraction arising from the contributions of the two-pion-exchange part, but the contribution of the pion-pion resonance in the I equals J equals 1 state improves the results considerably by largely cancelling the attraction. Definite discrepancies remain between the theory and the experiments, and some unknown effects must play important roles in determining the nuclear force in the region of the internucleon distance around the Compton wave length of the pion.
