Vibrations and rotations for the proton-neutron interacting boson model
The interacting proton-neutron boson model (IBM-2) is analyzed in terms of the concepts of a geometrical picture. The centre of mass and relative-motion deformations are determined, and for the deformed systems, rotational and vibrational modes are identified. The parameters in an intrinsic hamiltonian which govern these modes are calculated. For the SU(3) dynamical symmetry a one-to-one mapping is given between low-lying basis states in the geometrical and the algebraic model. The magnetic dipole operator in the geometrical model is derived from its counterpart in IBM-2. This serves as an example for the calculation of static and transition operators, generally. © 1988.
