Modern energy density functional and the current status of the equation of state of nuclear matter Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • We first describe a method, based on the simulated annealing approach, for determining a modern energy density functional within the Skyrme Hartree-Fock (HF) theory by carrying out a fit to extensive set of experimental data with additional constraints on the Skyrme parameters. Next, we review the HF-based random phase approximation (RPA) approach for calculating properties of giant resonances. We then present results of calculations for the centroid energies of giant resonances within the HF-based RPA and discuss the current status of the equation of state of nuclear matter. © 2012 American Institute of Physics.
