    • Abstract

       

      We discuss here some non-perturbative techniques of field theory as applied to nuclear physics. We first describe Walecka’s mean field approach and its generalizations with a many-body description. We next apply to nuclear matter a new approach to strongly interacting systems, of which Walecka’s method becomes a specific approximation. The phenomenological implications of the same are also discussed.
