Deformed Nuclei Using the Barcelona-Catania Energy Density Functional

Abstract : We have recently presented a new non-relativistic nuclear energy density functional which is constructed, not as usual, from an effective density dependent nucleon-nucleon force but directly introducing in the functional results from microscopic nuclear and neutron matter Bruckner G-matrix calculations at various densities. We add a purely phenomenological finite range part to account for surface properties. We take from the literature a density dependent zero range force to describe the pairing correlations. We find that only four to five adjustable parameters, spin-orbit included, suffice to reproduce nuclear binding energies and radii to the same accuracy as those obtained with some of the best effective forces for both spherical and deformed nuclei. The deformation properties of this new functional are in excellent agreement with the results computed using the Gogny D1S force.
