Interacting boson model

The Interacting Boson Model (IBM) is a model in nuclear physics in which nucleons (protons or neutrons) pair up, essentially acting as a single particle with boson properties, with integral spin of 0, 2 or 4.

The IBM-I treats both types of nucleons the same.

The IBM-II treats protons and neutrons separately.
