Spin magnetization of small metallic grains

Small metallic grains which satisfy the conditions of the universal Hamiltonian are considered. It is shown that for such grains the effects of the interactions in the spin channel and in the Cooper channel on their spin magnetization are well separated, thus allowing the determination of the interaction parameters within this model. In particular, the existence of pairing correlations in small grains and the sign of the interaction in the Cooper channel can be uniquely determined.
