Riemannian contributions to the short-ranged velocity-dependent nucleon-nucleon interaction
MetadataShow full item record
A Riemannian curvature-scalar term arises when determining the difference between the velocity-dependent potentials used in the differential Schrodinger equation and in its path-integral Lagrangian representation. Two previous papers have demonstrated that the magnitude of this difference may be within experimental error in nuclear-matter binding-energy calculations, when medium-range and long-range interactions are considered. This paper completes this first series of analyses by focusing on the short-ranged velocity-dependent interactions as parametrized by Lacombe et al.
