Nuclear many-body thought offers the root for figuring out and exploiting the hot iteration of experimental probes of nuclear constitution which are now changing into on hand. the 20th quantity of Advances in Nuclear Physics is hence dedicated to significant theoretical chapters addressing primary matters: realizing single-particle homes in nuclei and the constant formula of a relativistic idea applicable for hadronic physics. The long-standing challenge of realizing single-particle habit in a strongly interacting nuclear procedure takes on new urgency and sig­ nificance within the face of designated measurements of the nuclear spectral functionality in (e, e'p) experiments. within the first bankruptcy, Mahaux and Sartor confront head-on the ambiguities in defining single-particle houses and the restrictions in calculating them microscopically. This considerate bankruptcy presents an intensive, pedagogical overview of the proper elements of many­ physique conception and of prior remedies within the nuclear physics literature. It additionally provides the author's personal imaginative and prescient of the way to correctly formulate and comprehend single-particle habit in line with the self-energy, or mass operator. Their technique offers a strong, unified description of the nuclear suggest box that covers adverse in addition to confident energies and constantly fills in that info that can't but be calculated reliably microscopically by way of a theoretically inspired phenomenology. specific emphasis is put upon test, either within the exhaustive comparisons with experimental facts and within the precise dialogue of the relatives of every of the theoretical amounts outlined within the bankruptcy to actual observables.

Single-Particle Green's Function Since the optical model and the shell model are very successful, one should be able to define the mean field in a model-independent way. This is a prerequisite to any attempt of calculating the mean field. The one-body Green's function and the mass operator playa basic role in this respect, in the case of nuclear matter as well as of nuclei. We recall the main definitions and concepts. Proofs can be found in monographs (BR 86, NO 88). We use the Heisenberg representation.

A horizontal dashed line corresponds to the antisymmetrized nucleon-nucleon interaction v. " In calculations of the binding energy, one often has made the "standard choice" U(k) = 0 for k > kF' and large and attractive for k < k F. The "auxiliary energy" eo( k) then has a large discontinuity at k F • This is awkward if one wants to investigate single properties of nuclear matter, for the main reason that the analytic properties of ';({(k; w) should ideally be conserved at each order of the perturbation expansion (HM 72).

This is a prerequisite to any attempt of calculating the mean field.
