2 particles in j shell jj coupling

2Particles in j Shell (jj-Coupling)

Look for 2-part. wfs of lowest energy in same j-shell, Vpair(r1,r2) < 0 spatially symmetric  jj1(r) = jj2(r). Construct consistent spin wf.

N = normalization factor

Which J= j1+j2 (and M)are allowed?  antisymmetric WF yJM

Angular Momentum Coupling

Symmetry of 2 particle wfs in jj coupling

Symmetry of 2-Particle WFs in jj Coupling

Antisymmetric function of 2 equivalent nucleons (2 neutrons or 2 protons) in j shell in jj coupling.

  • j1 = j2= j half-integer spins J =evenwavefunctions with even 2-p. spinJ are antisymmetric

  • wave functions with odd 2-p. spinJ are symmetric

  • jj coupling  LS coupling  equivalent statements

  • 2)l1=l2=lintegerorbital angular momenta L

  • wave functions with even 2-p. L are spatially symmetric

  • wave functions with odd 2-p. L are spatiallyantisymmetric

Charge independence of nuclear forces  neutron and proton states of similar WF symmetry have same energy  n, p = nucleonsChoose a specific representation in abstract isospin space:

Angular Momentum Coupling

Transforms in isospin space like angular momentum in coordinate space  use angular momentum formalism for isospin coupling.

2 particle isospin coupling

2-Particle Isospin Coupling

Use spin/angular momentum formalism: t  (2t+1) iso-projections

Angular Momentum Coupling

2 particle spin isospin coupling

2-Particle Spin-Isospin Coupling

Both nucleons in j shell  lowest E states have even J  T=1 !

For odd J  total isospin T = 0

3 states (MT=-1,0,+1) are degenerate, if what should be true (nn, np forces are same)

Angular Momentum Coupling

Different MTstates belong to different nuclei T3 = (N-Z)/2
