**Coulomb-excitation of 112, 114, 116Sn**

**The three faces of the shell model**

Pairing interaction: large spin-orbit splitting implies a jj coupling scheme.

3
**Symmetries of the shell model**

Three bench-mark solutions: No residual interaction IP shell model. Pairing (in jj coupling) Racah’s SU(2). Quadrupole (in LS coupling) Elliott’s SU(3). Symmetry triangle:

4
**Racah’s SU(2) pairing model**

Assume large spin-orbit splitting ls which implies a jj coupling scheme. Assume pairing interaction in a single-j shell: Spectrum of 210Pb:

**Solution of pairing hamiltonian**

Analytic solution of pairing hamiltonian for identical nucleons in a single-j shell: Seniority (number of nucleons not in pairs coupled to J=0) is a good quantum number. Correlated ground-state solution (cfr. super-fluidity in solid-state physics). G. Racah, Phys. Rev. 63 (1943) 367

6
**Superfluidity in semi-magic nuclei**

Even-even nuclei: Ground state has =0. First-excited state has =2. Pairing produces constant energy gap: Example of Sn nuclei:
