On the validity of the pseudo-spin concept for axially symmetric deformed nuclei
The average single-particle field shows a very small pseudo-spin-orbit splitting in the pseudo-spin representation. If this splitting is neglected, pseudo-spin becomes a good quantum number and the resulting scheme (the pseudo-Nilsson model) has a very simple interpretation. The pseudo-spin symmetry embodied in the realistic deformed average field is explored by comparing the single-particle energies and wave functions of the deformed Woods-Saxon model with the corresponding results of the pseudo-Nilsson model. The scheme is used to calculate the magnetic moments of deformed odd-A nuclei of the rare-earth region. © 1994.
