The nucleon-nucleon potential obtained from the most general effective chiral Lagrangian involving low momentum pions, nonrelativistic nucleons, and Δ isobars was considered to third order in the chiral expansion. The parameters of the potential were adjusted to reproduce the low energy nucleon-nucleon scattering phase shifts as well as the properties of the deuteron. Reasonable fits are obtained in this first application of a nucleon-nucleon potential based on chiral symemtry.
