Quantum nuclear many-body dynamics and related aspects

Abstract : This review article is devoted to a compilation of recent advances in the nuclear many-body dynamical problem. The building block of any microscopic model is the nuclear mean-field theory, designed to provide proper description of one-body observables. Important aspects related to mean-field and its relation to observables evolutions are presented. Currently applied nuclear mean-field theories are formulated within a Density Functional Theory (DFT) framework, the so-called Energy Density Functional (EDF) theory. In addition, beyond mean-field approaches, that are introduced to account for direct nucleon-nucleon collisions, pairing and/or configuration mixing, are strongly guided by the theory of Open Quantum Systems (OQS). Both DFT and OQS are interdisciplinary concepts that play a key role in the nuclear many-body problem and are discussed in this review. Beyond mean-field theories are illustrated to fusion, transfer and break-up reactions. Finally, more phenomenological approaches dedicated to multifragmentation reactions and low energy spallation reactions are introduced.
