Abstract

Collective motion in the nucleus is defined as change of the density distribution of nuclear matter in time. On the basis of this definition the Hamiltonian of nuclear rotation is obtained with moments of inertia corresponding satisfactorily to experimental data. The theory is easily applied to nuclei with non-axial equilibrium shape. For the latter the parameters of non-axiality are considerably smaller than in the DAVYDOV-FILIPPOV model.
