Relativistic Nuclear Many-Body Theory

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Nonrelativistic models of nuclear systems have provided important insight into nuclear physics.In future experiments, nuclear systems will be examined under extreme conditions of dmensity and temperature, and their response will be probed at momentum and energy transfers larger than the nucleon mass.It is therefore essential to develop reliable models that go beyond the traditional nonrelativistic many-body framework.General properties of physics; such as quantum mechanics, Lorentz covariance, and microscopic causality, motivate the use of quantum field theories to describe the interacting, relativistic:, nuclear many-body system. Renormalizable models based on hadronic degrees of freedom (<I>quantum hadrodynamics</I>) are presented, and the assumptions underlying ... continued below

Description

Nonrelativistic models of nuclear systems have provided important insight into nuclear physics.In future experiments, nuclear systems will be examined under extreme conditions of dmensity and temperature, and their response will be probed at momentum and energy transfers larger than the nucleon mass.It is therefore essential to develop reliable models that go beyond the traditional nonrelativistic many-body framework.General properties of physics; such as quantum mechanics, Lorentz covariance, and microscopic causality, motivate the use of quantum field theories to describe the interacting, relativistic:, nuclear many-body system. Renormalizable models based on hadronic degrees of freedom (<I>quantum hadrodynamics</I>) are presented, and the assumptions underlying this framework are discussed.Some applications and successes of quantum hadrodynamics are described, with an emphasis on the new features arising from relativity. Examples include the nuclear equation of state, the sh
