Fermion realization of the nuclear Sp(6,R) model
A fermion realization of the nuclear Sp(6,R) model, which complements the traditional bosonic representation, is developed. A recursive process is presented in which symplectic matrix elements of arbitrary one-body fermion operators between states of excitation Nℏω and N′ ℏω in the same or in different symplectic bands are related back to valence shell matrix elements, which can be evaluated by standard shell model techniques. Matrix elements so determined may be used to calculate observables such as electron scattering form factors which carry detailed structural information on nuclear wave functions. © 1998 American Institute of Physics.
