An Introduction to the Interacting Boson Model of the Atomic Nucleus
by Walter Pfeifer
Publisher: arXiv 2003
Number of pages: 181
This work introduces into the Interacting Boson Model, which was created in 1974 by F. Iachello and A. Arima and then extended by numerous papers. Many-body configurations with s- and d-boson states are described and creation- and annihilation-operators for bosons are introduced. States with defined total angular momentum are dealt with and the Hamilton operator of the IBM1-model is expressed in terms of Casimir operators.

The general coverage of the subject of atomic and nuclear physics provides the student who is planning to continue his studies of physics a reason able base for an understanding of many of the advanced texts and courses that he encounters later.

Some concepts in relativistic heavy ion collisions are discussed. To a large extent, the discussions are non-comprehensive and non-rigorous. It is intended for graduate students who are intending to pursue career in high energy nuclear physics.

Cornell Emeritus Professor Jay Orear discusses his relationship with his former professor and mentor Enrico Fermi. The book also includes discussions of Fermi by other scientists, most of whom presented their papers honoring Fermi's career.

We present a brief survey of the development of nuclear physics towards relativistic quark physics. This is followed by a discussion of the quest for the observation of the dissolution of nuclear matter into the deconfined quark matter ...
