Coulomb energy differences of mirror nuclei in the sd shell
The Carlson-Talmi shell-model theory for Coulomb energies of mirror nuclei indicates an appreciable discontinuity of the harmonic oscillator parameter e2(v/π)1 2 and the nuclear radius parameter r0 at A = 29. To be more realistic, configuration mixing within the sd shell at least should be taken into account. Considerations of a qualitative nature suffice to show that thereby the discontinuity loses its significance. © 1970.
