Calculation of the T=0 Levels of F18 Using One-Boson-Exchange Potentials
The low-lying T=0 energy levels of F18 are calculated in the harmonic-oscillator shell model using several velocity-dependent one-boson-exchange potential models of the nucleon-nucleon interaction. In these calculations we neglect (a) the short-range correlations which, if they were included, would suppress the repulsive core; and (b) core-polarization effects, which take account of the excitations of the O16 core. It is found that the shell-model matrix elements are too replusive, and the energy levels lie too high. In general, good fits to the experimental levels are obtained after reducing the ω-meson coupling constant to compensate for the neglect of the effects (a) and (b).
