The Nuclear Shell Model has been successful in accounting for some of the nuclear properties observed experimentally. These properties depend in general on one or few nucleons in the outermost shell which give important contributions to the properties of the nucleus as a whole. When more than a few nucleons are involved, like in the case of configuration mixing, the calculations become extremely complicated, and thus, the model becomes less useful. In this paper, an attempt is made to understand the nuclear many-body problem and to calculate the total nuclear energy.
