    Effect of residual many-body forces due to the evolution in the in-medium similarity renormalization group method

    Full text link
    In the past few years in-medium similarity renormalization group methods have been introduced and developed. In these methods the Hamiltonian is evolved using a unitary transformation in order to decouple a reference state from the rest of the Hilbert space. The evolution by itself will generate, even if we start from a two-body interaction, many-body forces which are usually neglected. In this work we estimate the effect of these residual many-body forces by comparing results obtained with the Hybrid Multi-determinant method, which keeps the Hamiltonian within the two-body sector, with the corresponding ones obtained with the in-medium similarity renormalization group. Although percentage-wise the effect of neglecting these induced many-body forces is not too large, they can be appreciable depending on the nucleus, the shell model space and the harmonic oscillator frequency.Comment: accepted version J. of Phys.

    Hybrid Multideterminant calculation of energy levels of carbon isotopes with a chiral effective nucleon-nucleon interaction

    We perform calculations for the binding energies and low-lying levels of 10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22C{}^{10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22}C nuclei starting from the chiral N3LON3LO nucleon-nucleon potential within the framework of the Hybrid Multideterminant scheme. The calculations are restricted to 4 major harmonic oscillator shells, via the Lee-Suzuki renormalization scheme. The results are compared with the experimental data.Comment: 24 pages 6 figure

    Many-body calculations with Deuteron based single-particle bases and their associated natural orbits

    Full text link
    We use the recently introduced single-particle states obtained from localized Deuteron wave-functions as a basis for nuclear many-body calculations. We show that energies can be substantially lowered if the natural orbits obtained from this basis are used. We use this modified basis for 10B{}^{10}B, 16O{}^{16}O and 24Mg{}^{24}Mg employing the bare NNLOoptNNLO_{opt} Nucleon-Nucleon interaction. The lowering of the energies increases with the mass. Although in principle natural orbits require a full scale preliminary many-body calculation, we found that an approximate preliminary many-body calculation, with a marginal increase in the computational cost, is sufficient. The use of natural orbits based on an harmonic oscillator basis leads to a much smaller lowering of the energies for a comparable computational cost.Comment: Accepted Physica Script

    A Time Dependent Multi-Determinant approach to nuclear dynamics

    Full text link
    We study a multi-determinant approach to the time evolution of the nuclear wave functions (TDMD). We employ the Dirac variational principle and use as anzatz for the nuclear wave-function a linear combination of Slater determinants and derive the equations of motion. We demonstrate explicitly that the norm of the wave function and the energy are conserved during the time evolution. This approach is a direct generalization of the time dependent Hartree-Fock method. We apply this approach to a case study of 6Li{}^6Li using the N3LO interaction renormalized to 4 major harmonic oscillator shells. We solve the TDMD equations of motion using Krylov subspace methods of Lanczos type. We discuss as an application the isoscalar monopole strength function.Comment: 38 pages, additional calculations included. Accepted for publication, Int. J. of Mod. Phys.

    Ab-initio calculation of the 6Li{}^6Li binding energy with the Hybrid Multideterminant scheme

    Full text link
    We perform an ab-initio calculation for the binding energy of 6Li{}^6Li using the CD-Bonn 2000 NN potential renormalized with the Lee-Suzuki method. The many-body approach to the problem is the Hybrid Multideterminant method. The results indicate a binding energy of about 31MeV31 MeV, within a few hundreds KeV uncertainty. The center of mass diagnostics are also discussed.Comment: 18 pages with 3 figures. More calculations added, to be published in EPJ

    SPA+RPA approach to canonical and grandcanonical treatments of nuclear level densities

    Get PDF
    Using an exactly solvable pairing model Hamiltonian in the static path approximation together with small-amplitude quantal fluctuation corrections in random phase approximation (SPA+RPA), we have analyzed the behaviour of canonical (number projected) and grandcanonical treatments of nuclear level densities as a function of temperature and number of particles. For small particle numbers at a low temperature, we find that though the grandcanonical partition function in SPA+RPA approach is quite close to its exact value, the small errors in its estimation causes significant suppression of level density obtained using number projected partition function. The results are also compared with the smoothed out exact values of level density. Within this model study, it appears that due to saddle point approximation to multiple Laplace-back transform, the grandcanonical treatment of level density at low temperature may be reliable only for relatively large number of particles.Comment: 11 pages(LaTex), figure available by the author, accepted for publication in Physics Letters
