ShellModel Description of Rotational Motion in OddMass Nuclei.
Abstract
An algebraic shellmodel realization of a quantum rotor for integral and halfintegral angular momenta is introduced. The underlying symmetry of the theory is the SU(3) supset SO(3) group structure. The algebraic model reproduces the eigenvalues of the quantum rotor hamiltonian well for normal shellmodel configurations; the mapping is exact for small values of the angular momentum in large SU(3) representations. A shellmodel hamiltonian using this algebraic realization of the quantum rotor and other noncentral onebody interactions is used to reproduce the experimental spectra of representative even and odd mass dsshell nuclei.
