Abstract An approximate Hartree-Fock self-consistent-field calculation is carried out on the /sup 14/N nucleus using the concept of symmetry and equivalence restrictions. The configuration interaction matrices belonging to a definite value of J, II, T are constructed using the jj coupled configurations arising from (1p)/sup -2/ shell. The approximate HartreeFock binding energy turns out to be 38.5 Mev too small, while it was only 13 Mev too small for the /sup 16/O. This is attributed to an inadequate choice of the tensor interaction or to the omission of a two-body spin-orbit interaction. The static magnetic dipole moment is calculated to be 0.39 nuclear magneton and the rms radius is found to be 2.14 F The results are compared with the earlier intermediate coupling calculations. A number of low-lying even-parity states are calculated and compared with the experimental values. (auth)
