A Statistical Model of Nuclear Level Spacings

Description: A generalization of Wigner's simple model for the distribution of nuclear level spacings is studied. The generalization is based on a stochastic process which reproduces the correct joint probabllity distribution of N energy levels for small spacings. The case N = 3, which includes the effect of the correlation between adjacent spacings, is discussed in detail. The resulting distribution and the correlation coefflcient are compared with experimental data. No definite conclusion can be drawn except that the effect of the correlations on the spacing distribution is very small. (auth)
