## Abstract

A Landau-Migdal approach to relativistic mean field theory of nuclear matter is used to define the single particle isoscalar current. By virtue of the near cancellation of scalar and vector potentials, this current is very close to the standard nonrelativistic isoscalar current; and hence the single particle isoscalar magnetic moment operator gives results in agreement with the nonrelativistic shell model. Calculations of magnetic moments for closed shell plus (or minus) one nucleon using this effective current operator recover the Schmidt values, thus resolving a longstanding problem with relativistic models of nuclear structure.
