Abstract

The multistep reaction theory of Feshbach, Kerman and Koonin is used to analyse data on nuclear reactions to the continuum. The multistep direct, multistep compound, collective and compound nucleus cross sections are calculated with the same set of parameters and it is found that it is possible to fit the (n, n′), (n,p) and (p, n) data in a fully consistent way. The (p, p′) data, however, could only be fitted by approximately doubling the strength of the effective interaction. Several possible reasons for this were investigated including isospin effects, neutron-proton distinguishability, sensitivity to optical potentials and non-locality effects, but the difficulty still remains.
