Nuclear pairing from two-body microscopic forces: analysis of the Cooper pair wavefunctions Conference Paper uri icon


  • © Owned by the authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2015. In a recent paper [1] we studied the behavior of the pairing gaps Δ F as a function of the Fermi momentum k F for neutron and nuclear matter in all relevant angular momentum channels where superfluidity is believed to naturally emerge. The calculations employed realistic chiral nucleon-nucleon potentials [2, 3] with the inclusion of three-body forces and self-energy effects. In this contribution, after a detailed description of the numerical method we employed in the solution of the BCS equations, we will show a preliminary analysis of the Cooper pair wavefunctions.
