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.

While the focus of the study is on the TPX and alternate concepts, it also provides a history of the overall fusion energy program. With this context, the study identifies (but does not answer) some underlying questions that must be addressed.
