A set of single-particle energies together with a set of two-body matrix- elements derived in a self –consistent manner from the Reid soft–core potential are used to calculate the energy levels of 20Ne. We used a harmonic oscillator wave function folded with two-body correlation functions in our calculation. It is found that the calculated spectra agree very well with experiment and the best available shell-model calculations by other workers. As a result we have demonstrated that it is possible to calculate the spectroscopy of nuclei microscopically and self-consistently in such a way that both the single –particle energies and the effective two-body interactions are derived from the same procedure.
