Chiral NN interaction in nuclear matter
Abstract
The effective field theory of NN interactions in nuclear matter is considered. Due to the Pauli principle the effective NN amplitude is not affected by the shallow bound states. We show that the nexttoleading order terms in the chiral expansion of the effective NN potential can be interpreted as corrections so the expansion is systematic. The value of potential energy per particle is calculated and some issues concerning the chiral effective theory of nuclear matter are outlined.
