Eigenvalues of the Nuclear Pairing Hamiltonian

A new technique is developed in this paper for solving Hamiltonians of the form H=Σk>0εk(ak+ak+a-k+a-k)-Σk,l>0G(k,l)ak+a-k+a-lal, where G(k, l) may have the forms: G(k, l)=G (independent of k and l), G(k, l)=GkGl, or G(k, l)=G(k, l) (nonseparable in k and l). The eigenvalues obtained with this technique are compared with the exact solutions of Kerman, Lawson, and Macfarlane. The agreement with the exact solutions is fairly good.
