The nuclear force in electrostatics

Michael Singer

This paper proposes an electrostatic model for the nuclear force. This uses a simple bounded electrostatic field to create the composite attractive and repulsive forces seen when two nucleons are in very close proximity. Rather than attempt to model such a force using the gross behaviour of electrons or positrons, whose electric fields extend to infinity, it works from first principles and applies finite element analysis first to the positron to demonstrate that the seeds of nucleonnucleon interaction have their roots in the positron-positron interaction, and then truncates the positron field at a fixed radius and shows that nucleonic attraction-repulsion results.
