A new method is proposed in the treatment of the seniority scheme. The method enables us to evaluate analytically the contribution from J=0 Cooper pairs in non-degenerate single-particle orbits to many-body matrix elements. It includes the SU (2) quasi-spin and the BCS approximation as two extreme limits. The effect of particle number conservation is properly taken into account.
