Title: Center-of-mass correction in a relativistic Hartree approximation including meson degrees of freedom

Abstract

We use the Peierls-Yoccoz projection method to study the motion of a relativistic system of nucleons interacting with sigma and omega mesons, generalizing a method developed for the alpha particle. The nuclear system is described in a mean-field Hartree approach, including explicitly the meson contribution. The formalism is applied to {sup 4}He, {sup 16}O, and {sup 40}Ca. The center-of-mass correction makes the system too much bounded. It turns out that a new set of model parameters is needed when the center-of-mass motion is consistently treated with respect to the traditional approaches. An appropriate refitting of the model brings the radii and binding energies to reasonable values for the oxygen and calcium.

  • The dispersion method of including the mesons and quark-gluon degrees of freedom in hadron-hadron scattering is related to the Jaffe-Low-Simonov P-matrix formalism by means of a special representation of the partial scattering amplitude. The CDD poles in the nonrelativistic version of the equations coincide with the P-matrix poles when the interaction due to meson-exchange effects is included, so these poles can be associated with the levels of the quark-gluon bag. A generalization of the method to include inelastic channels is proposed. The method is used to calculate the S and P phase shifts in NN scattering for incident-nucleon energies inmore » the range T = 0--1050 MeV. It is shown, in particular, that the inclusion of meson-exchange effects has an important influence on the position of the CDD poles in the P-wave amplitudes.« less
  • The static properties, such as magnetic moment, charge radius, and axial-vector coupling constants, of the quark core of baryons in the nucleon octet have been studied in an independent-quark model based on the Dirac equation with equally mixed scalar-vector potential in harmonic form in the current quark mass limit. The results obtained with the corrections due to center-of-mass motion are in reasonable agreement with experimental values.
  • A many body theory is developed where the Hilbent space is allowed to contain states of nucleons and mesons. The basis of the theory is the treatment of a field-theoretical Hamiltonian within noncovariant perturbation theory. Only diagrams corresponding to a one-boson exchange (OBE) are taken into account. First, the two-body scattering problem is developed, and this yields a scattering equation corresponding to that of Kadyshevsky. Then the theory is applied to the binding energy problem of nuclear matter in the two hole line approximation with a choice of the single-particle spectrum taken analogously to the Brueckner-Bethe theory. The resulting equationsmore » contain meson current corrections, which are physically interpreted. The standard Brueckner theory with static OBE forces is obtained in an adiabatic limit.
