Abstract Nuclear matter with a given neutron excess is treated within the frame of the K-matrix theory. General expressions for the symmetry energy epsilon / sub eym/ and the single-particle potential are obtained with the help of the reaction matrix that depends on two different Fermi momenta for neutrons and protons. In particular, an expression for the isotopic spin-dependent part U/sub 1/ of the single -particle potential is obtained, and then specialized for single particles at the Fermi surface. With suitable approximations, numerical values of epsilon /sub sym/ and U/sub 1/ at the Fermi surface are obtained with the help of the Bruckner-Gammel solution for nuclear matter. The results are: epsilon /sym/ = 64 Mev, U/sub 1/(k/sub F/) = 126 Mev. (auth)
