4 Thomas Duguet FIDIPRO Workshop - Jyvaskyla, Oct 9th-10th 2008 Early warnings in the PNR case The problem disappears if the same interaction (with exchange and coulomb treated properly) in the pp and ph channels First indication of the role of Generalized Wick Theorem (GWT) Dobaczewski et al, PRC76 (2007) Analysis in the complex plane for the PNP case Bender and Duguet, Int. J. Mod. Phys. E16 (2007) In the PNP case, by avoiding the use of GWT, one can cure the divergence problem even when different effective interaction are used in different channels. Anguiano et al, NPA696 (2001) Divergences occur in PNR when a level crosses the Fermi energy, with occupation 0.5 and = /2 at this point Tajima et al, NPA542 (1992) Early warnings
