Research from University of Tennessee reveals new findings on physics
April 9th, 2010
According to a study from the United States, "We study one-quasiproton excitations in the rare-earth region in the framework of the nuclear density functional theory in the Skyrme-Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov variant. The blocking prescription is implemented exactly, with the time-odd mean field fully taken into account."
"The equal filling approximation is compared with the exact blocking procedure. We show that both procedures are strictly equivalent when the time-odd channel is neglected and discuss how nuclear alignment properties affect the time-odd fields. The impact of time-odd fields on calculated one-quasiproton band-head energies is found to be rather small, of the...
