Three nucleon forces and nuclear structure

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The author's earlier research with Professor Bruce McKellar, some 30 years ago, led to the Tucson-Melbourne three-nucleon interaction, which is still relevant today. The new significance of three-nucleon forces in determining the structure of atomic nuclei will be discussed. This has led to increased efforts to learn more about the nature of these three-nucleon interactions, both experimentally and theoretically. The recently developed no-core shell model (NCSM) has the ability to test different theoretical models for three-nucleon forces by making direct comparisons of results produced by these forces with experimental data.
