A canonical transformation relating hard-core and velocity-dependent nucleonnucleon potentials is applied to the Srivastava potential and an equivalent hard-core potential is found. It is shown that the deuteron photonuclear electric-dipole integrated and bremsstrahlung-weighted cross sections resulting from the two equivalent potentials are essentially the same. The reasons for this agreement suggest that differences between the two sets of cross sections may remain small in other nuclei employing this type of potential.
