Isotopic chains around oxygen from evolved chiral two- and three-nucleon interactions

By Andrea Cipollone, Carlo Barbieri and Petr Navrátil


We extend the formalism of self-consistent Green's function theory to include three-body interactions and apply it to isotopic chains around oxygen for the first time. The third-order algebraic diagrammatic construction [ADC(3)] equations for two-body Hamiltonians can be exploited upon defining system-dependent one- and two-body interactions coming from the three-body force, and correspondingly dropping interaction reducible diagrams. This goes beyond the standard normal ordering truncations recently used in ab-inito studies. The Koltun sum rule for the total binding energy acquires a correction due to the added three-body interaction. This formalism is then applied to study chiral two-nucleon (2N) and three-nucleon forces (3NF) evolved to low momentum cutoffs. We find that these interactions reproduce the binding energies of nitrogen, oxygen and fluorine isotopes to great accuracy, providing clear indication of the predictive power of this approach. All three neutron driplines are correctly predicted when full 3NF are included. The formalism introduced also allows to calculate form factors for nucleon transfer on doubly magic systems.Comment: 5 pages,corrected typos,added references [3,9,12,14,39,41,42,44], minor changes in the introduction and final comments, results unchange
