The shifts of single-particle energy levels caused by distortions of nuclear equipotential surfaces is examined. Application of this approach is made to neutron single-particle states in the heavy-element region. Typical single-particle energy shifts are displayed in figures.
The equipotential shapes studied in this paper are axially symmetric and were obtained by the replacement with of the form
A Woods-Saxon well was used for the central field, and eigenstates of the cylindrical harmonic oscillator () were used as a basis set in these calculations. is analyzed in detail.
