The target of Advances in Nuclear Physics is to supply evaluation papers which chart the sphere of nuclear physics with a few regularity and completeness. We outline the sphere of nuclear physics as that which offers with the constitution and behaviour of atomic nuclei. even supposing many solid books and reports on nuclear physics can be found, none makes an attempt to supply a insurance that is even as carrying on with and fairly entire. many of us have felt the necessity for a brand new sequence to fill this hole and this can be the ambition of Advances in Nuclear Physics. The articles could be geared toward a large viewers, from examine scholars to energetic learn staff. the choice of themes and their therapy should be various however the simple perspective should be pedagogical. long ago 20 years the sphere of nuclear physics has accomplished its personal id, occupying a relevant place among ordinary particle physics on one facet and atomic and reliable nation physics at the different. Nuclear physics is notable either by way of its harmony, which it derives from its concise barriers, and by means of its outstanding range, which stems from the multiplicity of experimental techniques and from the complexity of the nucleon-nucleon strength. Physicists focusing on one point of this strongly unified, but very advanced, box locate it central to stick well-informed of the opposite points. this offers a robust motivation for a complete sequence of reviews.

77 Thus, the process of making a particle-hole calculation of dipole states is divisible into three main parts. First, the energies of the single particle and the single hole states are obtained from the spectra of the (A + 1) and (A - 1) isotopes of the nucleus considered. From the single particle energy levels so obtained, the unperturbed secular matrix (which is diagonal) is obtained. The matrix element is then evaluated, and the matrix of the residual interaction is constructed. This matrix is not diagonal; it is, however, symmetrical about the main diagonal.
The possibilities of transitions I ~ I and I ~ I - 1 are neglected. By neglecting spin, the particle-hole state formed by the absorption of the y ray is I ph) = (- ii[Y1;(tJ h ,CPh)Y1;+1(tJp ,t/>P)]~~Rlkh)Rl;+1(rp) = (- i; ~ C(limli + 1m 110) YF;(tJ h ,CPh)Yz~:;'(tJp ,cpp)R1;(rh)R1;+1(rp) m (31) It is useful to note that, because of the restriction to 0+ nuclei and to a nucleon-nucleon force which is a scalar, the matrix elements of interest are all independent of the angular momentum projection of the particle-hole state.
Spicer cer(43)]. In all the cases referred to here, the ratio of the dipole strengths in the two peaks is roughly 1 : 2, as is expected from the simple model. A summary of results is given in Table I. That the interpretation is correct is shown by the fact that the values of Qo deduced from these measurements agree within 10% or so with those obtained by other techniques, for example, coulomb excitation. 8 MeV. Fuller and Hayward(42) studied both the y-ray absorption and scattering cross sections for holmium and erbium with the thought of choosing between spheroidal and ellipsoidal shapes for these nuclei but were unable to arrive at any positive conclusion.
