Nuclear Model

 

(also model of the nucleus), an approximate method of describing certain nuclear properties that is based on the identification of the nucleus with some other physical system whose properties are either well known or amenable to a relatively simple theoretical analysis. Examples of nuclear models include the following: the degenerate Fermi gas model; the liquid-drop model; the rotator, or top, model; and the shell model. (See.)
