A convenient parametrizationin terms of (Okubo ’54): Requirethat The major problem is to solve the nonlinear decoupling equation.

  5. with Derivation of nuclear forces The decoupling equation can be solved recursively utilizing chiral power counting (NDA): Powers of Λ can only be generated through LECs Count powers of Q with Only non-renormalizableverices allowed (χ-symmetry) perturbative expansion Expansion in powers of Q/Λ: and Perturbative solution of the decoupling equation: The explicit form of the UT up to (Q/Λ)4isgiven in: E.E., EPJA 34(2007) 197 The same UT to be used to compute exchange currents, Kölling et al. ’09, to appear where
