The single particle SU(3) parentage coefficients are calculated for the case of leading SU(3) representation in the highest orbital symmetry partition, using the method suggested by Hecht. Tabulations are given for all possible cases of identical nucleons in η=3 and η=4 shells.

At excitation energies in nuclei where the state density is unambiguously defined there is a sharp separation between the smoothed spectrum (which defines the density) and fluctuations about it which have recently been studied with a view to understanding some aspects of quantum chaos. We briefly review these two complementary subjects, paying special attention to: the role of the effective interaction in determining the density; the calculation of interacting-particle state and level densities, and of expectation values of interesting operators; the information about the effective nucleon-nucleon interaction which is carried both by the density and the fluctuations.

A new derivation of the inverse energy-weighted sum-rules is given by applying the spectral distribution methods to the Rayleigh-Schrodinger perturbation theory. The scalar space result is then extended to the configurations. This is applied to obtain corrections to the ground-state energy estimates when the effective interaction is approximated by a model Hamiltonian obtained by taking linear combinations of various parts of the pairing and the Q.Q operators.

The subject of spectral distribution methods where one derives and applies the locally smoothed forms of observables in nuclei is briefly reviewed. It is well understood that the local forms (with respect to energy) of the level density function, expectation values and strength densities are Gaussian, linear (or ratio of Gaussians) and a bivariate Gaussian respectively. To accomodate symmetries in the above forms, one has to deal with multivariate distributions in general; for example the angular-momentum (J) decomposition leads to a bivariate Gaussian form for the level density. These results extend to indefinitely large spaces by method of partitioning and they generate convolution forms. The origin of these remarkable spectral properties is discussed and shell model examples are given to substantiate their applicability to nuclear systems. Spectral distribution theory is a practical, usable theory because the smoothed forms are defined in terms of traces of low particle-rank operators, and the trace information propagates. Finally we discuss the application of the spectral methods for a wide range of nuclear problems; these include binding energies, orbit occupancies, electromagnetic and
